David, King of Judah, the First Israelite Civil War. Honor in death, the sacrilege of raising a hand against the anointed of God. What is an anointed one, a Mashiah, how this differs in Judaism and Christianity. The penalty for sacrilege. David becomes king of Judah, and his power grows. David's general Yoav takes his army and mets Abner, general of the surviving House of Saul. They decide on a contest of battle. Twelve from each side step forward and exactly the same time each performs the same martial move on his opponent, resulting in the deaths of all 24 men. Lesson to be learned, thou shall not be predictable. Civil war ensues. In the battle Yoav's brother is ruthlessly murdered by Abner. David's men kill their foes in a ratio of 18 to 1. Then the battle ceases.
