2nd Samuel – Amnon: A Monster in David’s House

Our message is entitled Amnon: A Monster in David’s House. We have come to [esvignore]2 Samuel 13:1-22[/esvignore] in our trek through the book of Samuel. Amnon and Tamar are the focus of a tragic story of domestic violence and incest, but the frightful heart motives found in Amnon are surprisingly common even among people professing Jesus as their Lord. Let us come soberly to the text and hear with prayerful hearts so that the Spirit can apply that which needs applying to our own lives. I pray that as we walk through the story, we will be mindful of our deliverer, Jesus Christ, who washes us clean from our sins and calls us to walk in the light with Him. We will also spend some time in [esvignore]Ephesians 5[/esvignore]. Our outline is:

  1. Amnon’s Passion
    1. Tamar’s beauty
    2. Amnon’s “love”
    3. Amnon’s true desire
  2. Friends Who are Foes
  3. The Violent End of Lust
  4. Aftermath – Desolation
  5. True Love
