2 Samuel 13 is one of the most distressing chapters in the Bible as it tells the story of David's son Amnon raping his half sister Tamar. Her brother Absalom tells her to be silent, but her story is recorded in God's Word, to give voice to all who like her have been silenced, and so that we not turn a blind eye to sexual assault, but work to build safe communities. This sermon comes with a content warning.
