Rise of David – Discussion Questions

Questions for Reflection:
1.How much of our understanding of David’s character is contingent on the first two chapters of his story?

2. How would it change our perception of David if we thought that he really did want to replace Saul on the throne?

3. How does the character of Jonathan act as a cipher for the reader?
