What kind of king and what kind of kingdom are we asking for when we pray this prayer Jesus taught us to pray? A study of the Old Testament historical books-Joshua through Esther-enables us to see the Kingdom of God not only as it once was, but also as it is now, and as it will be one day.
Over ten weeks of guided study, relevant teaching, and group discussion, seasoned Bible teacher Nancy Guthrie traces the history of the people of God from the time they entered the promised land through a series of failed kings, exile, and finally their return to await the true king. Reader will see Jesus as:
- the greater Joshua who leads his people into rest
- the greater Boaz who has done all that is necessary to redeem
- the greater king who will sit on David's throne forever
- the great restorer who is building his church from ruined stones
Gain a fresh perspective on Israel's history and God's kingdom, a broader understanding of Jesus as the fulfillment of Scripture, and much more when you join with Nancy Guthrie on this incredible journey to see Jesus in the Old Testament.
This ten-week Bible study leads participants through the Old Testament from Joshua to Esther, highlighting how the historical books point to the person and work of Jesus as the true Son of David.
Nancy Guthrie teaches the Bible at her church, Cornerstone Presbyterian Church in Franklin, Tennessee, and at conferences worldwide. She and her husband, David, are the cohosts of the GriefShare video series used in more than 10,000 churches nationwide and also host Respite Retreats for couples who have experienced the death of a child. Guthrie is also the host of Help Me Teach the Bible, a podcast of the Gospel Coalition.
The Son of David is a book about Jesus. Nancy takes the reader through the plotline of redemption revealed in the historical narratives. All of the heroic figures in the Old Testament were mere pointers to the greater Savior, Redeemer, Shepherd, and King who was to come, namely, Jesus. This book argues very convincingly that all of the wonderful promises presented in shadow form have found their ultimate completion in the one who reigns perfectly over his kingdom. Thank you, Nancy, for your humble heart and prayer that desires to see more and more people give their affections to this amazing paradoxical kingliness that leads us to serve others with humility and courage.

Nancy Guthries Seeing Jesus in the Old Testament series brings a depth to womens ministries that we desperately need. When you complete The Son of David, you will have a wonderful grasp of the historical books, but also your heart will melt as you see Jesus unveiled in every book. John Piper has said, Beholding is becoming, and this is the kind of study that helps us behold our God and, in so doing, becoming the godly women we long to be.

As Christian growth leaders, we are constantly searching for Bible study material that is scripturally sound and grounded on biblical truths. Nancy Guthrie has a wonderful gift of keeping her studies interesting and challenging. The Son of David, perhaps her most inspiring work in the Seeing Jesus in the Old Testament series thus far, is no exception. No matter where students are in their spiritual walk or in their realm of biblical knowledge, they will be inspired as they discover Jesus in the books of the Old Testament.
