JONATHAN is Saul and Ahinoam’s eldest son. Along with his brother Ishbaal, he acts as a strategic and military advisor to Saul. Like his brother, he’s a top warrior and adept on the battlefield. But they differ in that Jonathan displays a cool head, patience, and a keen understanding of people. He’s forgiving, and takes the time to see the different angles of a situation. Jonathan stands up for his principles, including his deep religious beliefs. He genuinely believes that the prophet speaks for God.
