In the narratives of the Books of Samuel, Saul and David are not only two different individual figures; they also represent their kingdoms Israel and Judah. Thus the contrast between the two kings as a continuous distinguishing historiographic feature also reflects the Israelite-Judean conflict.
In the narratives of the Books of Samuel, Saul and David are not only two different individual figures; they also represent their kingdoms Israel and Judah. Thus the contrast between the two kings as a continuous distinguishing historiographic feature also reflects the Israelite-Judean conflict. Klaus-Peter Adam deals with the figures and the plot of the narratives and integrates their themes into the entire Deuteronomic history. The author shows how the covenants and rebellious upheavals form an important thematic link between the epoch of the former kings in the Books of Samuel and the epoch of the divided monarchy in the Books of the Kings. He also demonstrates how biblical historiography can be seen within the broader field of ancient historiography.
