David: Israel's Founding Father
(For Better or Worse)
Dr. Joel Baden joins us for our Sunday Forum!

Sunday, May 17
11:15am on Zoom

David is many things: “a man after God’s own heart”, a poet, warrior, scoundrel, and the ancestor of the Messiah. Who he is, what kind of person he is, and even what he did, changes depending on who is telling the story. So who was David – and what does David say about who we are? Dr. Joel Baden, professor of Hebrew Bible at the Yale Divinity School and author of The Historical David: The Real Life of an Invented Hero, will help us explore the figure whom we know more about than any other person in the Bible.
