Lessons in Manliness: Jonathan

By Richard Tucker

April 1, 2020

This week I am starting a periodic series called, “Lessons in Manliness” that will focus on a specific man or incident in the Bible that we can all learn from and apply to our daily lives. This inaugural piece will focus on the Old Testament man, Jonathon.

The Example

This particular story from 1 Samuel 14, takes place when Jonathan and his armor-bearer (basically his caddie, but for war stuff instead of golf stuff) left his father Saul’s war camp of 600 men to go check out the Philistine Army.
