These 2 books describe the events that occured during the kingship of David. What made David a man after God’s own heart? Also, in preparation for the book of Psalms, the subject of inspiration was discussed at length. Nathan at first told David that his idea to build a temple was a great idea, but then had to return to say that he was wrong. Can a prophet make mistakes? And, we discussed the story of David and Bathsheba. What is there to learn about God in that story? Did David want God to pardon him or to heal him?
