Absalom: (d. 840 BCE) Son of King David. Slew his half-brother Amnon to avenge the rape of his sister Tamar. He then fled to avoid their father David’s wrath. Eventually he returned, and later led a revolt against his father, which ended when he was killed by Joab.
For an informed reading of Kings 2:1–12
There were a number of things that David wanted to see happen, but which could be carried out only after his death.
