Series: The Life of David
We are starting a look through the Scriptures at the most written about person in the Bible. Other than God the father, Son, and Spirit, there are more chapters recorded about David's life than any other Biblical figure.
We know more about David than the New Testament church planting missionary Paul; and more than on the chief apostle Peter; and more than about father Abraham, or Daniel. God has chosen to give us David: examined from more directions, recorded in more situations, and captured in more passages than anyone else.

There are Psalms from his youth and boyhood, from his prime and peak, and from his older and fading years. God covers all the bases with a man and young man who lived in each era of his life "after God's own heart".
