The Sins of David & His Degenerate Children – The Days of David Episode 12

June 29, 20233 min read

The sins of David need little introduction. His adultery with Bathsheba and his murder of her husband Uriah are nearly as famous as his defeat of Goliath. This episode looks at how this critical  event in the Days of David unfolded and how it forever changed the way the king operated. He was still the man after God’s own heart. He gained forgiveness of his sins, but David was never the same after this event.

One key area where these changes in David played out was in how he handled his children. Never the best of fathers, now David begins to reap the whirlwind in his latter years, moving from one crisis to the next with his degenerate kids.

For those following along in your Bible, today’s podcast episode covers 2 Samuel 11-19
