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.”

David Becomes King

“David must surely have mixed emotions as he considers the future.  He is obviously relieved to be free of Saul’s constant threats, but the mantle of responsibility is now his.  (His kingship over all Israel is still some seven years away.  He must rule over Judah alone until civil conflict is resolved and he is accepted by all the people.

The account of these initial years begins with David seeking God’s guidance — one of the many traits which makes David such a special leader for God’s people.”
