King David of Israel Quiz

The King David of Israel Quiz.

A figure who is shrouded in mystery from a historical standpoint, David is a figure whose life has been the subject of many legends and studies. For the sake of this quiz, we will test your knowledge on King David of Israel as he is described in the Bible and Hebrew tradition. Though very few documents exist outside of these sources to provide concrete factual details about the reign of David as king, the oral tradition and biblical accounts of him are iconic enough that they themselves are history at this point.

David rose from humble beginnings with a religious call urging him on to greatness. He weathered disaster, war, and treachery to end up one of the most prolific characters of Hebrew legends. A man of both the sword and the pen, there was a period when he was considered to be a master of masculine temperance. However, David’s fall is just another fascinating aspect of the man’s legend. By throwing his virtue aside in favor of selfish pleasure, David’s reign lost its way.

Nevertheless, the man started a dynasty which would stand as a pinnacle of the Hebrew people until, according to Christian tradition, it watched over the Messiah. A few of the details regarding David’s legacy vary from source to source. Considering the sparseness of concrete physical records to perfectly spell out the facts of his life, the legends about him occasionally diverge. As such, this quiz will mainly focus on the more surface-level facts about David which most sources agree on.

Without further ado, we invite you to test your knowledge about this legendary figure who was crucial to the rise of the Christian and Jewish peoples. Take our King David of Israel Quiz to find out how much you know about his legend.
