In episode 15 of the Bible Unmasked, Pastor Joseph Salajan and Lavonne Brown discuss 2 Samuel 12 to 1 Kings 5. These chapters outline the rise of David and the drama that unfolds in his family during his reign. 

Date: April 11, 2021

Questions in this episode:  Does God still punish us even after we confess our sins?  Why did the child that was born from David's illegitimate relationship with  Bathsheba have to die?

 Does God love some of us more than others?  How can love turn into hatred like that?

 Why didn’t Tamar leave? Why sending her away was worse than raping her?

 Why didn't David punish Absalom?    Did David recognize Absalom as king?

 Did David actually teach Hushai how to lie to/deceive Absalom?

 Does the Lord really order someone to curse someone else?

 Wasn't that an act of abuse against his concubines?

 Was that a God-ordained act of "atonement"?

 Are plagues sent by God?

 Is there any reasonable explanation for this? Didn't he have wives and concubines?

 Is it commendable for parents to ask their children to complete the messy work/revenge they didn't complete?   Tags: #psdatv #BibleUnmasked #Sins #cruelty #David #throne #drama #war #forgiveness #sex #Tamar #killing #conflict #concubines #Salomon #child #kings #fall

  • Joseph Salajan

    Pastor Joe was born in the little town of Crasna (Romania). Ever since he was a child, he has been fascinated by the unique connection between pastors and their special book, the Bible. When at the age of 7 he received his first little Bible from a brave pastor who was able to procure it for him in spite of the interdictions of the communist regime, he felt special and decided one day he would become a pastor.

    After serving as a Pastor for 8 years in Romania, in 2013 he immigrated to the USA. He currently serves as Lead Pastor of Plantation Seventh-day Adventist Church. Along with his wonderful wife Anda and their gorgeous daughter Alessandra, he enjoys proclaiming God’s grace and ministering to his fellows.

    By God's grace, in February 2020 he completed my doctoral program obtaining a Doctor of Ministry degree in Preaching/Homiletics from Andrews University. His hobbies are languages, music, and poetry.
