Podcast #78: “Brother” by NeedToBreathe

Diving into 1 Samuel to discover friends that stick closer than a brother

Relationships. Can’t live with them, can’t live without them. This week’s song, “Brother” by NeedToBreathe, leads us to discover some of the brother relationships in the Bible. Just like in the band, these relationships are not always smooth sailing. There is, however, a wonderful example of two “spiritual brothers” that is worth looking into.

1-Samuel-18-3-square

I can’t wait to discover new things as we look at the friendship between Jonathan and David.

This Week’s Challenge

You are welcome to explore David and Jonathan’s relationship further by reading in 1 Samuel, but I have created a free resource to assist you in exploring Scripture by using the topic of “brothers”. I’ve entitled it “Oh Brother, Exploring a Topic in Scripture” and it is a simple one page tool to help you get started. You will need to choose one or all of the examples I list of brother relationships…Cain & Abel in Genesis 4, Jacob & Esau in Geneses 25-33, Joseph and his brothers in Genesis 37-45 or the prodigal son in Luke 15. Follow the free resource, it will guide you through the process step by step…I even include an example. Ready to take on this week’s adventure?
