The Old Testament book of 1 Samuel records the story of three important leaders in Israel’s history: Samuel, Saul, and David. The lives of these flawed men showcase God’s response to ancient Israel’s leadership crisis, offering valuable lessons related to what God requires of his people and their leaders today. In this redesigned volume in Crossway’s popular Preaching the Word commentary series, John Woodhouse shows how 1 Samuel reveals the importance of true leadership and the character of the godly leader. Even more importantly, this commentary points forward to Jesus Christ, the fulfillment of God’s promises to his people and the only perfect leader the world has ever known.
King David stands as one of the most important figures of world history. From children’s storybooks to Michelangelo’s famous statue, ancient Israel’s most famous king is still remembered and recognized by people around the world three thousand years after he lived.
In this commentary on the book of 2 Samuel, professor and former pastor John Woodhouse helps readers deepen their understanding of David’s tumultuous reign by highlighting his place in salvation history—a history that began with Israel but now encompasses God’s plan for the whole world. What’s more, he shows that the concept of the kingdom of God is crucial to the whole storyline of the Bible . . . and for our lives today.
Designed as a trustworthy resource for pastors who preach and teach on a regular basis, this commentary makes the case that David’s story is relevant because it lays the crucial foundation for the life and ministry of Jesus Christ, “the Son of David.”
