Watching Bible-based movies sometimes can be a difficult experience – much like following the Parramatta Rugby League Club (if this means nothing to you - rejoice!).
I’m sure you all have watched a biblically themed movie only to, at times, shuffle in your seat and wince not a few times at the poor dialogue and especially the acting.
A movie that comes to my mind is “King David” which starred Richard Gere – as King David.
In my opinion it’s not really that good at all! It’s actually awful.
However, to be fair, there is one scene that remains memorable and it’s truly a sad scene. King David, having received news that his son Absalom had been killed, falls to his knees and emotionally laments publically, “O my son Absalom, my son, my son Absalom! Would I had died instead of you, O Absalom, my son, my son!” It was a sad, sad scene.
How did King David’s son Absalom die and why? What do we know about Absalom and what can we learn from him, his relationship with his father and what can we learn about ourselves? Finally, what can we learn about parenting?
