David’s Sordid Past: This Ain’t No Kids Story

May 27, 2019

In this week’s episode, Pete and Jared take a close look at the call of David and the battle with Goliath (1 Samuel 16-17) to show how these biblical stories already portray David as a morally complex character from the beginning. These stories also tell us something of the intricate and layered nature of biblical storytelling.
