2 Samuel 15:1-16:14

  1. How was it that Absalom ‘stole the hearts of the men of Israel’?
    What do you make of David’s reactions here?
  2. Contrast the behavior of Absalom with that of Ittai and Hushai.
  3. Consider how the rebellion shows certain men in their true colours (16:1-14).
    Again note David’s reactions.
