Part 7 of a 7-part series. The final episode of this series puts the whole of Dovid HaMelech's life and role within the narrative of the Jewish people into perspective.

Some highlights:

- Dovid's psak (ruling) in a hypothetical case, resulting in the loss of 4 of his children.

- The tragic story of Amnon and Tamar.

- Avshalom's revolt and the fascinating personalities involved.

- An understanding of the 'Magen David' blessing that we say after reading the Haftarah.
