Bible teaching with an emphasis on Israel, prophecy and the Jewish roots of Christianity
Series: “The Warrior King (2022)”
David-like Leadership for Goliath-like times
This series originally produced in 2009, Warrior King: David-like Leadership in Goliath-like Times, not only tells the story of King David’s time but also the story of our own time. With challenges larger than Goliath all around us, we need Bible-based leaders now more than ever. Dr. Jeffrey Seif taught this eight-part series from Israel. David and Kirsten Hart join Jeff in the studio for up-to-date analysis of each program’s teachings. We also get location reports from Chaim Malespin and hear the music of Zola Levitt.
Unfair trials often checker the road to success. David had been chosen as the next king, but endured abuse at the hands of King Saul, tempered by his bond with the king’s son Jonathan. We evaluate Saul’s death and David’s gracious response.
David was a warrior in the physical sense, but also a spiritual role model for us all! His wars against the Philistines, Amalekites, and Ammonites are discussed, along with modern-day applications and how we can go on to ultimate victory.
Though anointed by God for kingship, David spent 13 years running from Israel’s first king before ascending to the throne himself. As we hear the story of David’s patient rise to power, we see him give glory and credit to the Lord.
From the Shrine of the Book museum in Jerusalem, Dr. Seif teaches from the writings of the prophet Isaiah. We examine how the Old Testament predicted a coming Davidic Son, which leads to the New Testament revealing the “Son of David”.
David’s gift for creating poetry and music shows that he was “in touch” with something beyond the state of his armies. Viewers will benefit from this program’s window into the softer side of the prolific songwriter.
