Chapter 3

Davidic DNA

  • Let's find out more about this fabulous King David.
  • The author distinguishes David's sons based on where they were born.
  • A few of them are born in Hebron where David ruled for seven years. A whole bunch more are born in Jerusalem (to be fair, David did live there for 33 years). How'd he get so many kids? He also had a whole bunch of wives.
  • David's most famous son is Solomon who ruled after his father died. And Solomon had a ton of kids, too. And tons of wives. Solomon got around.
  • The author lists all the kings of the Southern Kingdom of Judah up until the Babylonians took over and put an end to the whole Davidic dynasty.
