NewLSFB351: The New Lifespring Family Audio Bible – 2 Samuel 16 and 17

Well, we’ve seen that King David does not always get things right, and that point is underlined as chapter 16 begins. Ziba, the servant of Mephibosheth (who was Jonathan’s son), and who David had made manager of Mephibosheth’s estate, was not satisfied being the manager. He wanted to own it. So he met David while…

What God had said would happen to David’s household has begun. “Because of what you have done, I will cause your own household to rebel against you.” Don’t let the end of the last chapter we read fool you. Just because Absalom has been pardoned by David, with David sealing the pardon with a kiss,…

NewLSFB340: The New Lifespring Family Audio Bible – 2 Samuel 11 and 12

In this account, we see how what we might consider a small sin can quickly spiral into a disastrous web of deceit and horrendous sins that affect the lives of many people. As we have seen, David usually goes to war with his armies, but as chapter 11 begins, we see that this year, for…

Well David is finally king over all Israel. At God’s direction, Samuel had anointed him as the future king when he was a shepherd boy of about 12 or 15 years old. As we read today, he was 30 when God finally put him there. God always keeps his promises, but we never know what…

NewLSFB323: The New Lifespring Family Audio Bible – 2 Samuel 3 and 4

In chapter three, Ish-bosheth made a bad mistake. He forgot who really put him in the throne. It was Abner who made it possible for Ish-bosheth, King Saul’s son, to ascend to the throne. It was Abner’s cunning and strength as a leader who put him there. Ish-bosheth was not a leader, and he severely…

NewLSFB270: The New Lifespring Family Audio Bible – 1 Samuel 2

The chapter began with Hannah’s prayer when she brought Samuel to the temple. God had given Hannah the gift of a son. And I think that most people’s prayer would be something along the lines of, “Thank you, God, for giving me this boy.” But instead of focusing on the gift, Hannah is praising the…

2 Samuel ends appropriately enough with King David offering a sacrifice for forgiveness and God graciously accepting the sacrifice. It is really good to get back to the New Testament today with the teaching of the Apostle Paul. The Corinthian church had a few problems not unlike some of the issues that the modern church…
