>Hurrians in King David’s Court

>In my post today on “Solomon and Social Oppression,” I wrote that when David established his kingdom, he adopted a modified Egyptian model of government. I wrote: “Since before the monarchy Israel was an agricultural society, it is evident that David’s modernization process was based on models that were found outside of Israel.”

In a comment on my post, my friend Darrell Pursiful called my attention to a post he wrote on the Hurrian presence in King David’s court. Darrell wrote: “The court of King David seems to have a rather strong connection to the Hurrians who lived in Canaan around the turn of the first millennium.”

Darrell’s article is very informative. Readers who are unfamiliar with the Hurrians are encouraged to visit Darrell’s blog and read his post. The post is found here.
