Wilson's Dictionary of Bible Types
2 Samuel 14:25 (c) This son of David may be taken as a type of a human being without GOD.
- He had developed his body to perfection. Those who observed him could see nothing but physical beauty. From head to foot there was no blemish in him. With all of this, however, his heart was wicked.
- He hated his father David who was GOD's chosen king.
- He refused and rejected GOD's plan and purpose in regard to Solomon.
- He was fit for neither Heaven nor earth, and so he died between the two of them on the tree.
So is the religious hypocrite of today. He presents many aspects of beauty and characteristics of loveliness, yet his heart is not right with GOD.
2 Samuel 15:2 (c) In this passage Absalom is a type of the ingratitude and infidelity of professing Christians who are not really saved. When the test came he proved to be an enemy of GOD's king, and of GOD's program. He did not take his place on GOD's side. He wanted to assert his own sufficiency and his own supremacy.
