Bible Questions and Interpretation: Second Samuel 9-20 and First Kings 1-2?

Help with any of these questions would be amazing! I need help with the second samuel 9-20 and first kings 1-2 Please!

1. Second Samuel 9-20 and First Kings 1-2: The Court History of David.

A. After reading this story, which modern interpreters consider to be a single unit, reflect and profile the character of David

B. What adjectives come to mind in describing the David?

C. Are there any "sypathetic characters?" (and how can you sympathize with David)

D. What, if any, "timeless" qualities do you find in the story? (What lessons are learned from David and what he does; how are those lessons still relevant today)

E. Second Samuel 13 describes what today we call "acquaintance rape." What are the reactions of each of the characters in this troubling story? Given the unfortunate frequency of similar acts of sexual violence today, what can be done to address the problem of acquaintance rape today?

F. This story suggests that "what goes around, comes around" or "you reap what you sow." How would you answer the truth of these two sayings given the biblical reading and your own life experience?

    The Seventh-day Adventist Church strongly believes that Jesus is God (John 1:1-3,14). He is the MESSIAH. He is the Savior.

    Isaiah 7:14 prophesied the Virgin Birth of Christ our Savior. Indeed he is the Messiah. He will return with power in glory at the end of time as he has promised(Acts 1:9-11).

    This is a fact, not fiction. Beware of false teachers that tell you otherwise. Beware of those who deny the deity of Christ. Jesus died on the Cross for the Sins of the World(John 3:16). Jesus is God(John 1:1-3). He was one with God the Father in the Creation of the World (Genesis 1:1).

    Special note to all Jews, Atheists and Agnostics:

    According to the 19th century Scholar Henry Liddon, Jesus fulfilled to the letter no fewer than 332 Old Testament Prophecies. 29 Messianic Prophecies were fulfilled in the final 24 hours of his life alone.
