Johnathon aids in David's survival. Johnathan protects David, unconditionally. Some of Saul's anger towards David is in relation to his son's relationship with David. The 2 young men "became one in spirit" with each other, they made covenants and oaths between each other, many times, with the Lord as their witness. Oaths/Covenants they made to carry on between their descendants. Their love for each other is inspiring, uplifting, and perhaps a little "progressive". What say you on this overlooked story line? I ask not in negativity, but pure curiosity. It is a major theme in the book of Samuel. I come to your website, your videos and your podcasts when I am in need of the knowledge and understanding that churches don't/won't provide. I am genuinely thankful for what you all do at The Bible Project and will soon be a donor. The relationship between David and Johnathon and needs to be addressed in this modern world, full of modern Christians. There needs to be some understanding. Please help. Thank you. reply to comment → Dan B June 12, 2018 at 9:18 pm The impression I got about Saul is that he was literally insane as a king(at least at some point). He seemed to be pretty repentant(even if he lost his mind afterward) and humbled when David showed him that he(David) had his life in his hands and spared him(twice). I finished 1st Samuel. I found it interesting, sad, pretty brutal, but despite that pretty exciting(or at least I was wanting to find out what happens next). I also know and keep in mind that the biblical stories are not meant to provide perfect role-models/paragons for us, they are often flawed and sinful, even especially sinful. Even the Bible itself acknowledges that. We ought to be careful to avoid the argument from silence. That is not to say that we should be too judgmental of them. That is actually one of the things I found interesting, many of the biblical characters/"heroes"(if they can be called that) are simultaneously highly virtuous and highly viscous(having strong or many vices). Saul and David are good examples. The story of Saul is pretty sad, it appears that he started out as a relatively virtuous guy but lost his mind when he was king. Even though he was insane and was trying to kill David out of envy and paranoia multiple times, he repented multiple times when David proved to him that he could have killed Saul, Saul had the guts and the virtue to admit(to himself, to God, to David, and to anyone else present) that he was in the wrong and had done evil and considered David the better man, rather than hiding in denial or trying to save face. So far in the story, David reminds me of Saul's beginning and demonstrates virtue like his personal loyalty to people(even to Saul as Saul was repeatably trying to find and kill David and driving him into hiding), confidence in God(in the story of Goliath and other places), humility, and repentance(like Saul demonstrated at times). David also seems to have been very brutal at times, unforgivably so by most modern standards, but it is difficult for me to condemn him for too long since he seems to have been sincere about being a good man insofar as he(in his environment) knew how to be and also because he was willing to change when it was shown to him that he was in the wrong. I think that if David was around in the time of the ministry of Jesus, he might have been one of the least offended by Jesus, but if I were in that time, I might have been a pharisee. I condemn David at times out of unrighteous indignation, but I think he had a good heart despite his extreme problems(I doubt I would have done better than him if I were raised in the culture). Reading about David and the psalms of David is a very humbling experience for me. It reminds me how unjustly judgmental I can be if I am tempted to feel so-called "righteous indignation". I don't beat myself up over my past, but I do not consider myself to have the right to condemn others or to be unforgiving or to look down on anyone on earth. Condemnation of others is a burden that I don't want anyway. Unforgiveness and pride suck! reply to comment → Leandjy Estivene June 12, 2018 at 9:18 pm Nice video man reply to comment → nyc nyc June 12, 2018 at 9:18 pm Similly amazing that the stories are all about the Jews.As a young Christian growing up in the Evangelical church they did not express this to us. reply to comment → Allan Frasheri June 12, 2018 at 9:18 pm Funny thing, 1st samuel is called kings 1 in Catholic bibles, 2nd Samuel is called Kings 2, 1st kings is 3rd kings, and 2nd kings is 4th kings reply to comment → Angelo Adriano June 12, 2018 at 9:18 pm Could you please do it, with catholic books aswell? reply to comment → Zyre Raza June 12, 2018 at 9:18 pm The Holy Quran of Islam states and I qoute " Surah Al-Baqara, Verse 62:إِنَّ الَّذِينَ آمَنُوا وَالَّذِينَ هَادُوا وَالنَّصَارَىٰ وَالصَّابِئِينَ مَنْ آمَنَ بِاللَّهِ وَالْيَوْمِ الْآخِرِ وَعَمِلَ صَالِحًا فَلَهُمْ أَجْرُهُمْ عِندَ رَبِّهِمْ وَلَا خَوْفٌ عَلَيْهِمْ وَلَا هُمْ يَحْزَنُونَ Surely those who believe, and those who are Jews, and the Christians, and the Sabians, whoever believes in Allah and the Last day and does good, they shall have their reward from their Lord, and there is no fear for them, nor shall they grieve." It is upto the people of God's book to research into what Islam is and who the last messiah was. I hereby testify that quran is the word of the God of Adam, Noah, Abraham, David, Jesus, Joseph, Moses, Aaron and Muhammad.
