David the King, a study program from Bishop Barron, contains 2 discs totaling 135 minutes of fascinating and inspiring information that will help you understand King David and Christ as the fulfillment, the King of Kings...
King David is the paradigmatic king of the Old Testament. He wasn't perfect, following in the footsteps of Adam in the Garden of Eden, yet, at the same time, his reign pointed towards Jesus Christ.
In David the King, renowned speaker, Bishop Barron helps us understand this important and courageous man in light of the first king, and the King of Kings.
Adam was the first king. He was the steward of the Garden of Eden. God called him to govern the garden, but Adam didn’t fulfill his kingly responsibility.
Centuries later, David emerged as the king who would restore order in the Garden and bring the world under the lordship of God. But David fell. He fell, like his forefather, Adam, and his reign brought in a succession of compromised kings and rejected prophets.
The New Testament, however, prophesied a son of David who would understand the fullness of Israelite kingship… but whose actual reign defied expectation.
The story of King David causes us to look back to Adam’s kingship, and forward toward Christ the King, seeing Christ as the fulfillment of the Davidic line and the realization of the Kingdom of God on earth.
