The Rise Of David

In today's Understanding God's Word, Dr. John Akers takes us through the compelling story of the rise of the greatest king of Israel, King David.

Unrestrained Anger and Unrestrained Grace

As Saul reached the end of his reign and David rose up for his beginning, Saul became angry and jealous. He attacked David over and over with unrestrained anger, but every time David responded with total grace. In today's Understanding God's Word, Dr. John Akers examines the examples set by both men.

The Downfall of Saul

King Saul was the first king of Israel, and a good, strong king at that. but when God raised up David to become his successor, Saul couldn't handle it and he turned away from God. Today, Dr. John Akers shows us what lessons we can take from the story of Saul's downfall.

The Example Of Saul

Those of us familiar with the story of King Saul may mostly remember his ungodly treatment of David later in his life. But Saul was chosen by God as the first king of Israel for a reason, and in today's Understanding God's Word Dr. John Akers shows us how the early part of Saul's reign stands as a good example of leadership.
