Our story of the Days of David concludes in this final episode (part 13). This episode is called The Legacy of David. In the finale of our podcast series we look at the final events of David’s life and some of the unfinished business that his son Solomon concluded. We also look at the final chapter or Bathsheba’s story that is recorded in scripture. Then we go back and review 2 Samuel 21-24. These final chapters of the book of 2 Samuel form an epilogue of sorts. They do not fit into the narrative of the story of David in chronological order. Scholars believe they were added in after his death. But these are very important chapters that put a capstone on the story of David so we can understand who he was and why he was so important to the history of Israel but especially to the history of anyone who seeks after the heart of God!
For those following along in your Bible, today’s finale episode looking at the Legacy of David cover 2 Samuel 19 to 1 Kings 2.
