The Story Fort Collins Week 12 The Trials of a King

Chapter 12 of The Story is about David the King as told in II Samuel. Following Saul’s death, David is crowned king and establishes the nation, extending the borders and consolidating his power. Jerusalem is conquered and the ark brought home. The story of David’s “rise” in chapters 1-10, sets up the story of David’s “decline”, beginning with the story of Bathsheba in chapter 11 and extending to the end of the book. II Samuel 12 is the story of how Nathan, the prophet of God, confronts David with his sin. As we come together this Sunday to the table of our Lord, David’s response to the reality of his sin will guide us into honest confession so that our hearts are ready for God’s amazing grace.
