The Gift of Barzillai is about Barzillai, a relatively minor Biblical person, who came alongside David, the most influential man of his time, spiritually walking with the king in a covenant relationship when David was traumatized. That led to Barzillai being singled out for a special blessing, which led to our being blessed with the Person of Jesus Christ. K.
