Rape, Murder, Revolt, and Strange Advice

Thursday, February 21st, 2008 - 7:20 pm PST

The Brick Testament website has been updated today with seven new illustrated stories. Little is going right for David as he enters into his advanced years as king. His virgin daughter is raped by his firstborn son. Another son becomes a murderer, forms a popular uprising, and drives David out of Jerusalem. As he is fleeing, an old enemy tosses rocks and curses at him. Perhaps strangest of all, a long-since-decapitated enemy unexpectedly returns to fight the Israelites anew. Rest assured, these convoluted goings-on are all part of God’s plan, as he selective intervenes in human affairs to bring disaster on David’s family and bring disaster on Absalom.
