Tuesday Morning Adult Bible Studies

David the King
A Bishop Barron Bible Study led by Deacon Mike Bickerstaff (Begins December 5, 2017)
Tuesday Mornings from 10 to 12 Noon in McNamee Hall

 

By Bishop Robert Barron: Adam was the first king and steward of the Garden of Eden. He was called to govern the garden according to God's mind and purpose, but he did not fulfill his kingly responsibility.

Long after Adam, David emerged as the definitive king who would restore order in the Garden and bring the world under the lordship of God. But like Adam, David fell, and his reign ushered in a succession of compromised kings and rejected prophets.

The New Testament, however, foretold a son of David who would realize the fullness of Israelite kingship...but whose actual reign defied expectation. King David causes us to look back toward Adam’s kingship and forward toward Christ the King, seeing Christ as the fulfillment of the Davidic line and the realization of the Kingdom of God on earth.
