David's Annointing

R.C. Sproul

Series: The Life of David


Responding to the constant crying and complaining of the children of Israel, God gave them exactly what they wanted: a king like the other nations. But Saul’s throne was not to endure. God had another king in mind. How was this king different? What was the deciding factor in David’s ascent to the throne? What did he have that Jesse’s other sons didn’t? Continuing to explore the Life of David, Dr. Sproul teaches us what God is looking for in all of us as we consider “David’s Anointing.”
