King David, perhaps the greatest ruler of Israel and ancestor of the [[ Jesus Christ|Lord]].]] The holy and righteous ''' King David''' was the second king of all Israel, after [[Saul]] , around approximately 1000 B. C. He was also a [[prophet]], having written a great number of the [[ Psalter| Psalms]], and one of the Forefathers of [[Jesus Christ|Christ]]. The Church commemorates him together with all the ancestors of Christ on the [[ Sunday of the Forefathers]] ( December 11- 17, depending on the day on which the [[Nativity]] falls) and also on the first Sunday after the Nativity, along with [[Joseph the Betrothed]] and the [[Apostle James the Just]].
A complete account of the life of King David can be found in the [[Old Testament]] starting in [[I Kingdoms|1 Samuel]] 16, the entire book of [[II Kingdoms|2 Samuel]], and [[III Kingdoms|1 Kings]] 1-2. A slightly edited version of this story, along with some additional specifics of the king's reign, is also found in [[I Paraleipomenon|1 Chronicles]], particularly beginning in Chapter 11.
