The "Other" Son of David
Taught by Pastor Jay
Among the many titles cried out in honor of Jesus was “Son of David”, yet most people don’t know much about the origin of this title, the “original” son of David, King Solomon. Make time this winter to come and study the book of Kings which speaks of Solomon, and the Song of Solomon/Ecclesiastes which are said to be written by him. Learn the rich tapestry of Jewish tradition which holds our Scripture and this figure together. Childcare is available.
Bob and Sue H.
Childcare for ages 1-3 is available during the service. Older children are invited to stay in the worship service with their parents.
