The Page for “Daily Davar” our Bible-In-A-Year Scripture Reading Schedule

There we were…standing in the recently-excavated ancient ruins of the City of David. This was exciting. It was the very area where King David had begun his rule in Israel some 3,000 years ago. Our tour guide pointed to a deep shaft…the very water shaft which provided for the inhabitants of this enclave which had been previously occupied by the local Jebusites.

“This was the very water shaft which David’s captain Joab climbed with his men to take the city.”

This week’s Daily Davar tells the story in detail. Here is a preview:

On that day David had said, “Anyone who conquers the Jebusites will have to use the water shaft to reach those ‘lame and blind’ who are David’s enemies.” That is why they say, “The ‘blind and lame’ will not enter the palace.”
David then took up residence in the fortress and called it the City of David. He built up the area around it, from the terraces inward. And he became more and more powerful, because the Lord God Almighty was with him. (2 Samuel 5:8-10)

This week’s Daily Davar readings are filled with this kind of drama. Also, accounts of illicit sex, intrigue, courage, faith, conquest and more.

Most important, we learn about an imperfect man – a man limited by his times and by his passions – who, nonetheless is described as “a man after God’s own heart.” And in our Besora (New Testament ) readings you will encounter King David’s great descendant – the Son of David, the Messiah, Yeshua.

King David, though a great Jewish hero was a mixed bag as a man. But, Yeshua the Son of David will thrill you with his teachings and his amazing deeds. Enjoy this week’s Daily Davar.

Warmly,

Rabbi Rich
