Show Notes

Ben flies solo in this episode on 2 Samuel and 1 Kings. The reign of David and Solomon are the golden age of Israelite history. Despite civil wars and brutal rebellions, the monarchy persists and grows in its prestige and splendor. David’s sins bring great tragedy and sorrow, but seem to have some profound and timeless lessons. Solomon fulfills his father’s promise to build the temple and the project takes on cosmic themes that remind us of the creation in Genesis.
