Our journey through the Old Testament brings us to the second half of Samuel. 2 Samuel plots the rise and fall of king David. 2 Samuel is another of those Old Testament books that rarely gets preached on, but that doesn't mean to say there are no interesting stories or things we can learn from it! It is full of people doing horrible things as they try to promote or protect their own interests, and yet through it all God is at work.
After a promising start as king, where David obeys and praises God, he then makes a series of terrible mistakes. As a result, his reign goes into decline. Yet a gracious God makes a promise to the repentant David - a promise that points towards the Messiah, Jesus.
