How did King David Conquer Jerusalem?

The City of David, situated just south of Temple Mount, has become one of my favorite places to explore in Jerusalem.  Very significant excavation has taken place over the past few years and incredible discoveries are still being made.

But, just what is the City of David and its significance?

Well, we know that David was anointed King of Israel, and that he conquered the Jebusites, thus establishing his reign over all of Israel (2 Samuel 5).

Verse 7 of 2 Samuel 5 says, “David captured the stronghold of Zion, that is the city of David.”  But just how did he do that?  The city was walled and the enemy was fierce.  Yet, God granted David the wisdom to know how to conquer the Jebusites.  It is a fascinating achievement!

Aren’t you glad to serve and worship a God who is infinite in wisdom and able to guide us to victory!  The City of David is a testimony today of God’s faithfulness to David, and His promises reign forever true to the Jewish people.  Why not take a moment right now to pray for the excavation project at the City of David!

Tomorrow we’ll look at yet another incredible find in the City of David, so come back for that!
