Saul and David (Doré, Gustave). Click image to enlarge.

“And thine house and thy kingdom shall be established for ever before thee: thy throne shall be established for ever.” (2 Sam 7:16)

Of course no thread tracing salvation through the Old Testament could be complete without a mention of King David. The shepherd come poet, harp-player come giant-slayer, sometimes the pariah and sometimes the darling, second king of Israel.

A coward (1 Sam 21:10 – 22:1), an adulterer (2 Sam 11:1 – 4), a murderer (2 Sam 12:9) and yet a man after God’s own heart (Acts 13:22). How can this be? Because, as John MacArthur comments, a “man after God’s heart …is not a perfect man. He is a man who sees his sin for what it is and repents of it.” (MacArthur 1996:20)

This series attempts to answer the question, “Present a “Royal Line of Salvation” throughout the Old and New Testament. Start at Genesis 3:15 passing through Isaiah 9:6 and ending at John 3:16. Join together at least twenty verses outlining the salvation story.” by giving a chronological account of the genealogy of Christ recorded in Luke 3.
