KING DAVID
December 13

Symbols: Six-Pointed Star, Slingshot and 4 Stone, Harp, Crown

The six-pointed star is the emblem of the Royal House of David even to this day. Christ, who is born of the House of David, can truly claim this emblem as His own.

The crown and scepter signify Christ's universal kingship. Christ is not only the King of the Jewish nation, but the "Desired One of all," the cornerstone which unites both Jew and Gentile.

Recommended Readings: 2 Kings 5:3-4; 2:1-7
