#38. David Finished

Jan van Noordt, Bathsheba at the Deathbed of King David, 1646-50.

As we reach the conclusion of King David's life, readers of the Hebrew Bible are confronted with a troubling image: a feeble old man who in his last words requests vengeance against those who slighted him. Join the Third Hour Podcast as we discuss the appendix to the Books of Samuel, the succession of Solomon, and why we should be cautious whenever we hear somebody make big claims about chiasm.

Read along in 2 Samuel 21-24 — 1 Kings 1-2!
