Speaking the Truth in Love

Speaking the Truth in Love

David and The Christ

Introduction: As Christians we know that Jesus is our ultimate example of perfection. There are also many individuals in the scriptures that we can look to as examples of righteousness, and thus did many things in ways similar to Jesus. We are in the midst of a series of programs that compares some of these individuals to Jesus. Some of these people were similar because their lives emulated His life; others were similar because events that happened in their lives corresponded with events in His life. In all of these cases we can see the consistency of the Scriptures and of God's expectations for His followers. For this study we want to compare David and The Christ!


• Both were from Bethlehem

            David (1 Samuel 16:1, 4, 10-13): Jesus (Micah 5:2Matthew 2:1John 7:42)


• Both were from the lineage of Judah and Jesse

David (1 Samuel 17:12): Jesus (Matt. 1:1, 5-6, 20, 9:27, Luke 3:23, 31-34, Rev. 5:5)


• Both learned how to be Great Leaders from their experiences

            David (1 Chronicles 13:10-12, chapter 15 & 16): Jesus (Heb. 2:17-18, 4:15, 5:8-10)


• Both were fearless facing insurmountable odds

David (1 Samuel 17:32-50): Jesus (Romans 5:18Phil. 2:5-11Heb. 9:26-27, 10:10)


• Both were loved by God the Father for their hearts

David (Acts 13:22): Jesus (Matthew 17:5, 2 Peter 1:16-17)


• Both submitted to God’s Will

David (Psalm 51): Jesus (Philippians 2:5-8)


 • Both became Kings of God’s people

David (2 Samuel 5:1-5, Matt. 1:6): Jesus (John 18:33-381 Tim. 6:13-16Rev. 17:14)


 • Only one became the perfect Savior and Spiritual King on His throne in Heaven!

Jesus (Luke 2:11Acts 5:29-32, 13:22-23, Phil. 2:9-112 Tim. 1:8-111 John 4:14)


Closing: Before we close we want to make sure we invite all in our audience to our Bible studies on Wednesday at 7pm and Sunday morning at 9am. We would love to study God’s together with you!


In Acts 2:29-42, the apostles demonstrate that Jesus is greater than the patriarch David. Those present realized that they needed to submit to the risen Savior and His Authority. They asked, “Men and brethren, what shall we do?” Peter gives them the answer. They needed to repent of their sins and be baptized in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission (forgiveness) of their sins. You need to submit to the Savior of the World who is now reigning as King in Heaven. Obey Jesus today so that you can become a Christian. He is the only way to the Father and the only way to the salvation of your soul!


Our next live program is planned for Monday, February 3, 2014 when we hope to study “Abraham and The Christ“. We hope to see you then on “Speaking The Truth In Love”.
