The Beloved

Neither Saint nor Superman - David, the Beloved

No figure in history is more real than David; he stands before us, with his grandeur and his littleness, his virtues and his crimes, his tough and gentle spirit. 
David was portrayed by many artists. 

David:

Shepherd,
Multi-talented,
Youthful-Strong,
Composer,
Singer,
Musician,
Poet,
Psalmist,
Warrior,
Leader,
Follower,
Statesman,
Embarrassed by Popularity,
Friend to Johnathan,
King,
Lover,
Spouse,
Adulterer,
Liar,
Killer,
Sinner,
Dethroned,
Father,
Griever,
Worshiper,
Preacher,
Mediator,
Prophet
Speaker,
Dependent on God,
Favoured,
Beloved,
Forgiven,


Here is my version of David
- a typical human being staggering through life's ups and downs, successes and blunders. He changed his position many times but not his beliefs. He was favored, loved and forgiven by God and he knew he did not deserve it.
