David’s Eternal Temple

King David wanted to build a permanent temple to the Lord. But in 1 Chronicles 17 we discover that God had other plans in mind. God would build a house for David, and establish a kingdom that would never end. Was that kingdom ruled by Solomon who built the 1st Temple according to his father’s designs? Or was the Lord revealing something much greater to David than an earthly temple?


  1. What was going on spiritually with David that he was able to set up this tent in violation of Mosaic law and not incur God’s wrath? Was he somehow already drawing on the new covenant?
