In this book we have David's dying testimony and confession of faith in the Lord God of spiritual Israel, the Holy Trinity, that One revealed to us in the Person of the Mediator of the Covenant of Grace. Therefore in his exposition of 2nd Samuel 23:1-7 Martin Luther unfolds the mystery of the Person of the Lord Jesus Christ, who is the image of the invisible God, "...made of the seed of David according to the flesh, and declared to be the Son of God with power, according to the Spirit of holiness, by the resurrection from the dead." (Romans 1:3-4)

As he speaks thus of Christ's Person as God-Man, so throughout the book Luther also sets forth the mystery of the Holy Trinity; that God is One yet subsists in three distinct Persons of Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. And man's chief end is to know this only true God and enjoy him forever. As David says, "This is all my salvation, and all my desire."

In this treatise Luther argues forcefully for a distinctly Christian reading of the Old Testament, placing great emphasis on the unity of the entire Bible as regards the revelation of the Lord Jesus Christ.
