What is the relationship between David and Jonathan? Are they friends? According to my count, Jonathan was 15 to 20 years older than David. I’d like to know your opinion. Thanks.
Scripture presents the relationship between David and Jonathan as a unique friendship.
The verse writes (I Samuel Chap. 18) that Jonathan loved David as his own self, and the Sages use their relationship as an example of the intensity that friendships can reach.
Sorry for the delay in replying.
