By the time Israel becomes a nation, their priesthood is already totally corrupt. So the people ask for a king to lead them and God anoints David. In this video, we’ll explore David’s role as a priestly king and his failure to live up to this calling. The story of David ultimately points to the arrival of Jesus, the true royal priest who will bring the blessings of Eden and restore humans to their divine calling.
Today, we continue our journey through the book of 1 Samuel in chapters 15-17 as God rejects Saul as King, David is anointed, and we see the battle of Goliath.
