The Lion of Judah Series – Between Two Kings Part 1C


Ta`Mara Hanscom

David has been on the run from King Saul for a lengthy period of time. He’s worn out and his faith is faltering – which is what can happen when we endure an exceptionally extended time of trial and attack. And there is nothing more brutal than having to suffer that attack at the hands of our family – whether it be church family or biological family. This particular type of trial that David has suffered for years now is finally getting the best of him. Follow close as we continue the narration, David says to Saul:

 20 Now do not let my blood fall to the ground far from the presence of the Lord. The king of Israel has come out to look for a flea—as one hunts a partridge in the mountains.”

21 Then Saul said, “I have sinned. Come back, David my son. Because you considered…

The Lion of Judah – Between Two Kings – Part 1B


Ta`Mara Hanscom

The first few lessons of this unit will explore the situation Israel found herself as she waited in limbo between her two kings: Saul and David. Both were anointed by God, but one had the gift of faith – and it was his most precious gift.

Last week we left off with David and Saul parting ways on good terms. Then David went to a familiar place of shelter…near the Ziphites. And if you’ll recall, the Ziphites excelled at stirring up trouble – and I think they had greedy motives. They re-stirred the pot, so-to-speak, by going to Saul and telling him where David and his men were sheltered because they wanted Abigail’s stuff.

15 Such “wisdom” does not come down from heaven but is earthly, unspiritual, demonic. 16 For where you have envy and selfish ambition, there you find disorder and every evil practice.James 3:15-16 niv 2011

Review: CSB WORLDVIEW STUDY BIBLE


Aimes Thoughts

9781433604348_CSB_WorldviewStudyBible_NAVY_LID

I was blessed to receive the new CSB Worldview Study Bible last week. I am currently reading through the Bible in a year, so spent this week using this new Bible and had a couple thoughts.

Appearance– I loved the look of this Bible. It is a navy leather touch. I know some like my husband prefer a hard cover, but I prefer a soft. I love the way it bends in your lap when reading it. They do offer other cover options if you lean more towards a hard cover.

Translation– I have been reading the CSB this year and have really enjoyed it. It is described as a mix between NIV and ESV. I had previously been reading the ESV and I do like that translation as well. However, I have found the CSB to be a little more readable especially as I am reading larger…

The Lion of Judah Series – # 1 Between Two Kings Part 1A


Ta`Mara Hanscom

“Active opposition to Christ and His Kingdom quickly follows upon the establishment of a rival kingdom.”

George Williams

And before you know it, we’re between two kings, and we’ve got some choices to make.

The first few lessons of this unit will explore the situation Israel found herself as she waited in limbo between her two kings: Saul and David. Both were anointed by God, but one had the gift of faith – and it was his most precious gift.

Also, in this unit, we’ll look at the significant parallels between Jesus Christ our King, and David, who was a “type” of Christ.

I can’t remember where I found this definition, but here is what I’m talking about when I say, “Type” or “Typology”:in Christian theology and Biblical exegesis, is a doctrine or theory concerning the predictive relationship of the Old Testament to the New Testament. Events, persons…
