The Story of King David
David brings the tent of God into Jerusalem and sets up the possibility of a house for God. David was anointed king by Samuel when he was just a boy, but he would not become the king until King Saul was killed. As a boy he was known for his music and his courage, and later he became a great soldier in Saul’s army. As king he continued to fight important battles and made some great mistakes, but was repentant. He established the kingdom of Israel that lasted 400 years and made the city of Jerusalem another city of David, like Bethlehem.
