How would you describe Saul? (Nonphysical characteristics)
Jealous because he hears people cheering about David and gets mad when it is not about him, not a good listener because he lets Agag go and doesn't enforce the ban, Doesn't know his place because he sacrificed the burnt offering but he's not a priest, paranoid because he goes to the medium at Endor to find out what is going to happen
Saul sacrificing the burnt offering?
This is wrong because he didn't listen to the command from God and he also isn't a priest so he doesn't have the authority to sacrifice an offering

This is the beginning of the end for Saul as king b/c he disobeys God by letting Agag go free and refuses the ban. He loses God's favor.

Saul and David
The increase of Saul's jealousy, which turns to rage against David. David spares Saul's life.
David and Meribaal
Meribaal is important to David because he is a relative of Jonathan and it is keeping his covenant. David shows favor to Meribaal by giving him Saul's lands, eats at the King's table, and lives in the palace. David's acts are somewhat genuine because he is upholding his covenant with Jonathan to honor his family name and protect them. However, there may be some political motives in keeping him at his palace so the others couldn't rally around a relative of Saul and other throw him.
David and Bathsheba
Major characters: David and Bathsheba; minor characters: Uriah (Bathsheba's husband), Joab (David's trusted general), and Nathan (a prophet). Theme of lust and consequences. David's desire for Bathsheba motivates him to sleep with her, deceive Uriah, and eventually have Uriah killed (sent him to the front of the battle field and then pulled the rest of the troops away, leaving him to be killed; made to look like an accident).
Rather than simply tell David God disapproves, the parable acts as a mirror held up before David so he can see his own wrong doing and experience its full effect. Through Nathan, God makes known his disapproval of David's actions. The lamb: Bathsheba; The richman:David; The poor man: Uriah
God's response to David's actions
David repents by putting on sack cloth and covers himself in ash. Bathsheba gives birth, but as a punishment their child will not survive.
Bathsheba conceives a child with David which is Solomon

Woman of Tekoa
Joab convinces David to bring Absolm back and forgive him through this woman. She is similar to Nathan's parable, a mirror so David sees his own actions.
After Absolm's return
Absolm begins to plot against David, so David flees for his life. They go to battle and David's army wins. Absolm is stuck in a tree and Joab kills him.
