What was unique about David, was his strong desire and relentless pursuit to know and understand the heart of God, carry out the will of God, and experience the glory of His very presence. David had a strong measure of trusting faith. He learned how to relate with God.
David is anointed by Samuelas seven brothers and his father watch. Alleged Bible Contradiction 1 Samuel But 1 Chronicles 2: Which text is correct?
How many sons did Jesse really have? And how can the Bible be trusted if you read one thing in one place and a totally contradictory statement in another place?
Sensible Solution Both texts are no doubt correct. You will note that 1 Chronicles 2: It simply names seven of his sons including David and two of his daughters. Even today it is often common practice except in formal genealogical registers to refer to only the surviving children. The two texts in question here do not constitute a necessary contradiction.
Therefore, this difficulty is resolvable and cannot be legitimately used to cast doubt on the trustworthiness of Scripture. Therefore, the case for the authority of the Bible as an inspiredaccurate, and inerrant revelation from God remains intact. No new Bible difficulties are about to be revealed.
Here are a few principles to keep in mind as one approaches Bible texts that appear problematic: There is a choice as to the ground upon which one stands in reviewing the matter of Bible difficulties. One may choose to presuppose that the Bible is without error, which acknowledging that it contains some very hard-to-explain texts.
Or one can presuppose that the Bible is full of error, although it may also still contain many truths. If one accepts as a premise the charge that the bible contains even one minute error, then the bible automatically, necessarily, loses its authority as the Word of God.
Without inerrancy the Bible cannot be infallible, and without infallibility the bible cannot be trusted as the reliable record of an Almighty God. See 2 Timothy 3: Jesus consistently recognized all Scripture as being both reliable and authoritative.
Verse context and historic word usage are both keys to unraveling many so-called Bible contradictions. Copyist and transmissional errors do not imply Bible errancy.
A broad range of scribal errors have been identified, categorized, and explained in ways that allow one to continue to reasonably insist on an inerrant original autograph Bible.
More Information About the Bible.David's mother was apparently a Jewish woman, because `no Ammonite shall enter the congregation of the Lord to the 10th generation’ (Deu ), and yet in PS and PS , David refers to himself as "the son of thy handmaid", which would seem to testify to his mother's relationship with the Lord.
The relationship between David and his father is rocky to say the least.
David’s father is oppressive and tyrannically religious. Uncle Axel, on the other hand, is kind to David and provides him. After David killed Goliath, King Saul required David to live with him in his palace as a military commander (1 Samuel 1 Samuel 2 And Saul took him that day, and would let him go no more home to his father’s house.
David’s father, Yishai, was the grandson of Boaz and Ruth.
After several years of marriage to his wife, Nitzevet, and after having raised several virtuous children, Yishai began to entertain personal doubts about his ancestry. This story helps me to understand his relationship with God and how he is so appreciative of God for bringing .

King David’s big, dark secret They eventually drove J ephthah out of the family to prevent him from receiving any of his father’s inheritance. If David’s mother was also a prostitute it would explain why she wasn’t mentioned and I suspect it was the brothers who pushed not to have David included when Samuel called for a meeting.
