The Jacob’s Ladder series continues to follow the inspiring story of a young King David, showing what he had to endure before becoming a king of Israel. In these episodes, titled “David on the Run” and “A New King,” we see the events leading up to David’s crowning as king.
David survives Saul’s plot to kill him, and endures while King Saul allows another man to sleep with David’s wife. David’s path to the throne is difficult and full of battles and danger. King Saul, in his desperation to see David killed, seeks out a woman of divination. He has the woman contact the deceased prophet Samuel and asks about his own future. Saul does not like Samuel’s answer.
