    Do You Think King David and King Saul Were Real People? Yes, but Sadly, the Bible and History Differ.

    Unfortunately, the historical King David is not the biblical King David. Historical investigation points to two finds. First we find mention of David in the 18th Dynasty, indicative that chronologies are off. Second, we find a significant borrowing from the city of Tanis and the royals there. I go into this briefly in my book, The Greatest Bible Study in Historical Accuracy by Steefen. Although I'm working on the second edition, I am not updating the material on King David. That will happen in the third edition. Look at the King David story in terms of foreign affairs and the role of Egypt over the area to understand the United Kingdom of Judea and Israel was not an independent state, not the richest kingdom under a Hebrew Solomon, and the 23rd Psalm is amduat language (my paradigm shift happened at the Metropolitan Museum of Art, Egyptian Wing, New York City and it is depicted in my theatrical play/dialogue: Water Bearing Fish, Part I).
