——-Marc Chagall The Death of Saul
Join us as we finish the first book of Samuel (it really finishes with 2 Samuel Ch 1).
Cry with us as we say goodbye to Saul whom we have come to know.
As we study David’s famous elegy over the slain Saul and Jonathan, question with us, “Who is David?”
“Thy beauty, O Israel,
Upon thy high places is slain.
How the mighty are fallen.”
— 2 Samuel 1:19
“David’s story has a way of shifting out from under us.
It is a story that refuses to be tamed, secured, or neatly ordered.”
—David M. Gunn and Danna Nolan Fewell. Narrative in the Hebrew Bible.
