Synopsis
David is a man in the very real sense of the word: making high praises to God, he is also able to play havoc with the Divine Law…
A very gifted man, but also an unscrupulous and  a calculating person, exuberant both in his sins and in his sincere love for God, that he considers to be the real and only king of Israel. As a young shepherd from Bethlehem, he gets in the king of Israel, Seul's favour, becoming one of his greatest warriors; he defeats the invincibile Goliath, marries Mical, but he is overwhelmed by an adulterous passion for the beautiful Betsabea, he has to face his sons' troubles, up to God's will discernment, choosing his son Solomon as his successor to the Israel throne.
