The Davidic dynasty, which ruled for more than 400 years, was established in a palace of cedar wood built by King David in Jerusalem with the help of Hiram, king of Tyre. The film invites viewers into the ruins of the building in the City of David identified by the archaeologist Eilat Mazar as David’s palace, and to see the main events that took place there. David’s opulent “House of Cedar” proclaimed his power and might. Unlike in most royal palaces of those days, however, criticism of the king was also heard there at times, and at end of a day’s work running the kingdom, other sounds reverberated—sounds of song and music, spiritual life and creativity.
