A chasm of grief, anger and bitterness left David and Absalom estranged. What follows in 2 Sam. 15-18 is the rest of the fallout from David’s family feud. A civil war of epic proportions erupted in Israel which pitted father against son. In this tragic episode of David's life we learn a lot about the pain of betrayal and see glimmers of the Gospel.
