2 Samuel 5:1-10 and 1 Chronicles 11 &12
I’ve been waiting to celebrate this day with David: He’s finally anointed King of Israel! I especially love the detail in the paintings by James Tissot that I’ve included today. I don’t know about you, but I never pictured the warriors of the Old Testamnet to be warrior-looking . . . and Tissot’s art gives me a new perspective. While I’ve seen many of the Biblical movies, these spoke to me in a different way, as though they are all together posing for the artist right before they move out to battle. If there are movie-replays of history in heaven, I’ll be there every day watching history unfold.
