DAVID THE KING . . . 

A six-part video series hosted by Bishop Robert Barron.

His kingship recalls that of Adam in the Garden of Eden, and yet it points toward the King par excellence, Jesus Christ. Adam was the first king and steward of the rightly ordered Garden of Eden. He was called to govern the garden according to God’s mind and purpose, but by allowing negative influences to wreak havoc on Eden, he did not fulfill his kingly responsibility. Long after Adam, David emerged as the definitive king who would restore order in the Garden and bring the world under the lordship of God. But like Adam, David fell, and his reign ushered in a succession of compromised kings and rejected prophets. 

The New Testament, however, foretold a son of David who would realize the fullness of Israelite kingship...but whose actual reign defied expectation. 

King David causes us to look back toward Adam’s kingship and forward toward Christ the King, seeing Christ as the fulfillment of the Davidic line and the realization of the Kingdom of God on earth. In David the King, Bishop Barron helps us to understand this pivotal figure in light of the first king and the King of kings.

What People Are Saying:

 

M. Hensley..."Just finished this series with a group in our church. It was fabulous! It provides an understanding of this part of the Old Testament that helps you see the direct link to today and why we have some of the issues we do. We found it compelling. Thank you! Cannot wait for the next series!“
