The story of Mephibosheth and King David is a picture of the Gospel story about the Lord Jesus who came into this world to bring the sinner into a place of favour and blessing.

Bible Scriptures: 

2 Samuel 8:15-1815 And David reigned over all Israel; and David executed judgment and justice to all his people.16 And Joab the son of Zeruiah was over the host; and Jehoshaphat the son of Ahilud was chronicler;17 and Zadok the son of Ahitub, and Ahimelech the son of Abiathar, were the priests; and Seraiah was scribe;18 and Benaiah the son of Jehoiada was over the Cherethites and the Pelethites; and David’s sons were chief rulers.

2 Samuel 9:1-7And David said, Is there yet any that is left of the house of Saul, that I may shew him kindness for Jonathan’s sake?

And there was of the house of Saul a servant whose name was Ziba; and they called him to David. And the king said to him, Art thou Ziba? And he said, Thy servant!And the king said, Is there not yet any of the house of Saul, that I may shew the kindness of God to him? And Ziba said to the king, Jonathan has yet a son, who is lame on [his] feet.And the king said to him, Where is he? And Ziba said to the king, Behold, he is in the house of Machir the son of Ammiel, in Lodebar.

And king David sent, and fetched him out of the house of Machir the son of Ammiel, from Lodebar.And Mephibosheth, the son of Jonathan, the son of Saul, came to David, and fell on his face and did obeisance. And David said, Mephibosheth. And he said, Behold thy servant!And David said to him, Fear not; for I will certainly shew thee kindness for Jonathan thy father’s sake, and will restore thee all the land of Saul thy father; and thou shalt eat bread at my table continually.”
