Who is the father of David? Bible Q and A

Advent Cry is supported by your prayers and donations. Your contributions are well appreciated. Thank you.

This is a very simple and interesting question. We all know about the mighty Philistine Goliath and how little, young and brave David used a stone and a sling to kill him. This powerful story can be found in 1Samuel 16 and 17. Here you can also find the first anointing and rising of David to be King over Israel.

So who is the father of David?

Well, since we know a bit about King David, it wouldn’t come as a surprise for you to want to know who is his father and that is what you are about to find out from the Bible.

Notice these passages from the Bible:
Ruth 4:17  And the women her neighbours gave it a name, saying, There is a son born to Naomi; and they called his name Obed: he is the father of Jesse, the father of David.

Ruth 4:22  And Obed begat Jesse, and Jesse begat David.

Answer: The father of David is Jesse.

In the Bible, David is referred to as being the son of Jesse on different occasions. It simple will lead one to think that Jesse was a man who led his household  or family to serve God.

    Thank you for your comments.
    I so hope to one day to have a mighty tattoo, on my right arm, of a jawbone of an ass, heap upon heap, a thousand enemies of God. Judges 15:15-16

      Hi John, I hope you are ok. You don’t need to put any mighty tattoo on your right arm.
      The Bible says we must not do it. Leviticus 19:28 KJV “Ye shall not make any cuttings in your flesh for the dead, nor print any marks upon you: I am the Lord.”

      1 Corinthians 6:19-20 KJV
      “What? know ye not that your body is the temple of the Holy Ghost which is in you, which ye have of God, and ye are not your own? For ye are bought with a price: therefore glorify God in your body, and in your spirit, which are God’s.”
