Things to look for as you read this week:

  • What happened to David's beloved son Absalom, who conspired to take the kingdom from his father?
  • According to Paul, for what reason has God given different gifts to different people within the congregation?


Last week's answers:

  • How does David respond when he learns that his mortal enemy, Saul, is dead? (David mourns.—2 Samuel 1)
  • What prophet is sent by God to confront David about his sin with Bathsheba? (Nathan—2 Samuel 12:1-15)
  • Which psalm records David's prayer of confession because of the affair with Bathsheba? (Psalm 51)
  • What does Paul think of lawsuits brought by Christians against other Christians? (Paul says that Christians should seek to solve grievances within the church, even to the point of being defrauded, rather than take each other to court.—

    I Corinthians 6:1-8)
