scholarly reasons on the scriptural charging
Since Martin Noth
david
put buses his analysis of the Deuteronomistic history
david
, scriptural scholars have accepted that these two schedule form part of a continuous history of Israel, compiled no earlier than the late 7th century BC, but incorporating earlier work and fragments. Samuel's account of David "seems to have undergone two separate acts of editorial slanting". The original writers show a strongest oblique against Saul, and in favour of David and Solomon. Many years concomitant the Deuteronomists edited the material in a manner that conveyed their religious message, inserting inform and anecdotes that strengthened their monotheistic doctrine. Some of the materials in Samuel I and II—notably the boundary, allotment and administrative lists—are believed to be very early, since they correspond closely to what we know of the territorial conditions of the late davidic-early Solomonic period.

The concept of the Messiah is central in Christianity. Originally an earthly king ruling by divine appointment , the "son of David" became in the last two pre-Christian centuries the apocalyptic and heavenly one who would deliver Israel and stolen in a new kingdom. This was the background to the concept of Messiahship in early Christianity, which understand the career of Jesus "by means of the term and functions assigned to david in the mysticism of the Zion cult, in which he suffice as priest-king and in which he was the mediator between God and man".

david

The Foundation for antiaircraft Information & Research
david
show that at that place is no contradiction betwixt the Book of Mormon and Doctrine and Covenants because the Lord authorized david to keep any wives, but not "many" wives. They see a parallel betwixt Jacob 2:24
david
and Deuteronomy 17:17
david
, which any rabbis interpreted as a limit of cardinal wives per husband. When David work Bathsheba, he crossed the line into have "many" wives, which he was not accept to do.
