Question: I’m reading in I Samuel 16:21. It says that David came into Saul’s service to play harp for Saul then became one of Saul’s armor-bearers.  Saul even sent word to Jesse saying to ‘allow David to remain in my service,’ so I would assume that Saul knew who David was.  However, in I Samuel…

Question: I was listening to a sermon about how to be a man after God’s heart. He was speaking about love, and he said David loved Saul even when Saul tried to kill him and searched for him for years. Even if Saul became David’s enemy, David would never do the same against Saul.

Question: I have had plenty of discussions with people about praising God. The problem with a lot of people is that they don’t see the wrong in praising Him with their own personal praise that God didn’t command in His worship. I’m not trying to be confusing. A discussion I had once where a man…

Question: I know Solomon built the temple; David couldn’t because of the wars he had been involved in (I Kings 5). But didn’t David prepare some of the material for the building of the temple? Or was he involved a little in the preparation? Answer: “Now it was in the heart of my father David to build…

Question: In studying I Samuel 17:38-40, I am wondering if David is not a young boy as some stories depict him, but instead, he is a young man. Saul was the tallest man among the children of Israel and we see that he is now giving his armor to David to wear. David must have been…
