An impressive historical consideration and faith-based writing on this historical and spiritual touchstone leader from The Bible.

Who, really, was King David of the Bible?

Last week here on the blog I discussed whether it ever will be possible to have a historically accurate biography of Jesus of Nazareth. (Spoiler alert: Probably not.) So what if we back up about 1,000 years and ask something...

Appears to be a white person from where I'm sitting.

I spoke with one middle easterner some time ago about if Noah's ark was up in the mountains. He said they say it's up there but he's never seen it.

Margarlit may not believe reefer is a God given plant either. Her readings aren't as bad as some of the nuns who try changing tradition to suit their own needs though.

Who really is the four billion year old rock I pray to that's in my backyard?

You got one of those radio carbon samples too?

I've thought some - there is a chance the skies really did open up causing world wide flooding. Something we humans couldn't comprehend on how that would of happened.

You find Noah's ark then the possibility of us all becoming more of a believer than we already are would be good.

Here's something else that even King David wouldn't have the answer to.
Explain how the saber toothed tiger and the woolly mammoth were of two species to survive most of the last ice age. What happened to the rest of us? Were we even here or made back then?

Homo Sapiens is at least 300,000 years old. So yes, we weathered many ice ages. Even the group that left Africa about 70,000 years ago and eventually spread throughout the globe somehow managed to survive glacial periods.

BREAKING!

Bill Tammeus has uncovered research indicating that the historical King David was actually born Davina. That's right! King David was a transgender man.

Tammeus will be submitting his research to the LGBTQZ Religious Scholars Review Board. Pending approval, you will be able to find Tammeus in their annals. We suggest wearing gloves.

We're all really glad that you spelled annals with two "Ns".
And so is King David!

The spelling is correct and as intended. That you didn't understand is a surprise to no one. Weird!

^^^I think 12:37 was making a (lame) joke.

Interestingly David killed more people (personally) than anyone else in history. It is recorded that he killed tens of thousands of soldiers with just spears, swords, daggers and bow. By himself. As he fought enemies. Although God called him "his favored one", when the temple was being built, God told David not to come or be involved in building it as he had too much blood on his "hands" from killing his enemies. So God both loved him and in some ways disliked him. David was also the richest man on earth, he would be roughly 600 times richer than Bill Gates today and he owned gold worth 60 billion in todays prices. Thus he name has been one of the most popular men's names since that time.
