We continue our series on David with this story of his coronation as king, a time that should be the culmination of all of the stories of David we have read in past weeks. In some ways it is. But in other ways, it isn’t as clean as we might have imagined. There are rough edges around this man who was God’s chosen. This can tell us something about leadership and kingship, especially when we consider Jesus, whom God offered as a model of kingship.
