Absalom’s Rebellion

“Perhaps nothing is sadder for a righteous father than to be burdened with a rebellious son — a son who so envies his father’s power that he is willing to oppose him openly and to disgrace him in every possible way.

As the historical record of this period begins, there is record of the birth of David’s son Solomon.  Solomon will prove to be of an altogether different character from that of his brother, and will one day succeed his father on the throne.”
