First Temple Period And Exile (1040 – 515 B.C.)
03.02.00A. SAMUEL ANOINTS DAVID by Godfrey Durand. 1896. King David was, without question, the most important person in Jewish history, second only to Moses. First century Jews in Israel believed that the messiah (small “m” because they did not consider him as deity) would be like King David and restore the lost Davidic Empire. That perception made accepting Jesus as their “Anointed One” extremely difficult.
