1 and 2 Samuel

Show Summary Details

Preview

The books 1 and 2 Samuel tell the story of King David, founder of the line that would rule in Jerusalem for over four hundred years and the most closely drawn character in the narrative of the Hebrew Bible and the Old Testament. The artistry of the telling, the range of the associated themes, the importance of many of the related characters, and the intricacy of the textual history combine to make 1 and 2 Samuel among the most enjoyed and closely discussed biblical books.
