David Is the Chosen Leader

David Is the Chosen Leader

Scripture:
2 Samuel 5:1-5, 9-10, Mark 6:1-13

Over these past few weeks, we’ve been following the trajectory of Saul, David, and eventually we’ll get to Solomon and all these texts we’ve been watching have been talking about leadership. Today, we have all of Israel acknowledging that David is their chosen leader, their God given leader. It’s interesting. David, the youngest, the shepherd boy, the most inexperienced, and yet all of Israel recognizes him as their Leader. Fast forward and we go to Mark’s gospel, and we have Jesus.
