2 Samuel 18:1-33
Trigger warning: This episode includes incidences of sexual assault. In our last episode in this series out of 2 Samuel, we take a look at the story of David and his son Absalom. We discuss how this “soap opera” sort of narrative reveals the damage caused by cycles of violence. How can we work to end these cycles in our families and communities? How can we push back against the myth that violence can somehow be redemptive?
- David mentioned Walter Wink’s article, “The Myth of Redemptive Violence.”
