2 Samuel, Meditations on
DescriptionDavid, the man after God's heart, in 1 Samuel is anointed king but then persecuted. Now in 2 Samuel this same David ascends the throne, first of Judah, and then of all Israel. The theme of this book is the establishment in power of David, the king of grace- a striking picture of the Messiah at the beginning of His reign.
Yet in this book David is not only a picture of the Messiah, but he is also the responsible king to whom God has entrusted the rule of His people. In this respect, he proves to be a failure. His fall, its terrible consequences, the discipline carried out upon him, his restoration, his confession, his sacrifice, and the new meeting place for the Lord and His people on Mount Moriah: all these are subjects before us here.
