The Bible Comes Alive: Life of King David - January 24, 2019

January 24, 2019  /  7:00 PM  /  OVU Main Campus (Room 139)

Presented by Jeffery Donley, PhD  |  see full bio

Who was David?

More has been written about David than any other character in the Old Testament.

In this presentation, Dr. Donley brings King David to life by weaving together Biblical texts as well as the startling discoveries of modern Biblical archaeology and scholarship with extraordinary freshness, intimacy, and vividness of detail, revealing him in all his glory and fallibility.

Who was David? He was:

  • a shepherd boy who defeated the Philistine champion Goliath;
  • the young man who ascended to be Israel’s second King;
  • a Warrior who became the wise Jewish ruler who brought the tribes of Israel together as a united nation;
  • a vile sinner to fall to the depths of evil in adultery and murder;
  • a repentant sinner who made restitution for his iniquities, and
  • an old man who, though forgiven, experienced the enormous consequences of his sins and who could not even keep warm!

This event is free and open to the public!
