  • Jonathan Series

    Contributed by Roshelle Brenneise on Nov 25, 2022

    In an era of cancel culture and the quest to remain in power at all cost, the story of Jonathan is worth knowing about.

    November 26, 2022 We know virtually nothing about Jonathan. He was the oldest son of Saul and Ahinoam and next in line for the throne of Israel. The Bible does not tell us if he was married, but we are told that he had a son, Mephibosheth, who was 5 years old when Jonathen was killed on Mt. more

  • Go Thy Way: Jonathan’s Warning To David Series

    Contributed by Jonathan Spurlock on Jan 28, 2020

    Jonathan, son of King Saul, knew David would be king of Israel someday. This is one of several encounters where Jonathan helped David survive. This is the second message in the series, "go thy way".

    Introduction Jonathan, the oldest son of Saul and crown prince of Israel, knew he would never be king. That didn’t stop him from being a true friend to God’s choice, namely, David. The book of 1 Samuel has several episodes, we could say, where Jonathan took David’s side and even protected him. more
