Visiting the Quayle Bible Collection
King David: Poet, Warrior, Seducer, and Murderer
On display September 2015 through July 2016
King David is a complex and, in many ways, contradictory figure. Living during the 10th century BCE, he was the second king of Judah and the first king to unite all of the tribes of Israel in what is now known as the United Monarchy. The exhibit shows images of his rise to power in the Court of Saul, of breaking away and of establishing his own court in Jerusalem as well as the struggles within his court and the triumphs and tragedies of his personal life and relationship with God.
