Bible Survey: 2 Samuel (Part 1)
Every book in the Bible is about God, and yet the main human character in 2 Samuel is King David. 2 Samuel covers the years from around 1010 B.C. to 970 B.C. With the continuing story of how Israel transitioned from being ruled by judges to kings, 2 Samuel also speaks much about the consequences of sin in the lives of God’s people. In chapter six we see the story of Uzzah streaching out his had to steady the ark and God killing him for his act. What is the difference between this act and David eating the showbread? One is that the ark showed the very presence of God. God is holy and we cannot touch the holy things unless God makes away for us to. God makes an everlasting covenant with David for someone to sit on David’s throne. This is fulfilled by King Jesus. He is King and we must make our peace with Him.
