Meet the real King David:

“Moses has the Ten Commandments, it’s true, but I’ve got much better lines. I’ve got the poetry and passage, savage violence and the plain raw civilizing grief of human heartbreak,” says King David in Joseph Heller’s novel “God Knows.”

What makes the biblical David narratives so compelling?

David gets the most ink, by far, in the Tanakh, and his story contains the foundation of Jewish and Christian Messianism. Take a deep dive into the relevant biblical sources examining David, his women, children, generals, and other pivotal figures. The historical perspective will be explored through archeological findings.

In addition, this course will study other key royals, such as Saul, leader before the Davidic Monarchy, Solomon, David’s successor, Athaliah, the ruthless queen who ruled Judea for six years, Omri, the founding king of Israel, and Hezekiah, whose arrogance nearly led to the destruction of Jerusalem.
