A Heart for God: Lessons from the Life of the Holy King and Prophet David Fr. Josiah
Christians are indebted to no one in the Old Testament more than to the Holy Prophet and King, David. He alone, amongst all the believers in the ancient covenant, is described by the Lord as having a “heart for God.” David’s sin, in infamy 2nd only to that of Adam, has been meditated upon by believers, as has David’s deep repentance- which has provided an image for countless penitents to imitate over the centuries in order to find peace with God. In these ten lectures Father Josiah surveys the entire life of King David- from his early rise as a humble shepherd, to his years in hiding from Saul, to the magnificent covenant that God cut with him which provided the prism through which believers have come to understand He Who is the ultimate Son of David, the true King of Kings who reigns on David’s throne at the right hand of the Father; the one’s whose heart is gentle and perfect: Jesus Christ the Lord.
