Our podcast series epic on the Days of David begins with a look at the times and heritage that David was born to. This opening episode in our series looks at King David’s origin story. For those following along in your Bible, you’ll want to read the books of Judges and Ruth to track the story in episode 1 of this podcast series covering the life of King David.
But Ruth replied, “Don’t ask me to leave you and turn back. Wherever you go, I will go; wherever you live, I will live. Your people will be my people, and your God will be my God. Wherever you die, I will die, and there I will be buried. May the LORD punish me severely if I allow anything but death to separate us!” When Naomi saw that Ruth was determined to go with her, she said nothing more. Ruth 1:16-18 (NLT)
