David and Trickle Down Blessing

King David is in the hot seat this week—week six of our series on salvation history. He’s the most important figure in the Old Testament. David’s “a man after God’s heart” after all. His life had many triumphs and some big falls. But of these vignettes, do we recall the covenant God made with him? Or that he was the first to live the role of Son of God since Adam—we’re talking since creation here? Listen as Richaél Lucero answers these questions and more. Like, what about the blessing that came with being the Son of God and who it’s supposed to benefit?

Throughout the series Richaél Lucero will examine one of the six key figures, the covenant they made with God and its meaning.
