Every "hero" of the Bible looks more like a villain than a hero once you get into the fine details of their lives. King David is no different. He was an incredible leader, courageous warrior, and a tender hearted man whose legacy was marred by selfishness, violence, sexual sin, and abuse. The darkness in David's life serves as a reminder for what lurks in every human heart. The heroic acts of David foreshadow the true-and-better David, King Jesus. In the totality of the Old Testament, no one more foreshadows Christ than King David, who is described as a man after God's own heart. As you study the life of David, take special note of where David's story foreshadows the life of Christ.
