The painting probably dates from between 1505 and 1510. After David had slain the giant Goliath, Jonathan became his devoted friend. David is represented holding the head of Goliath and Jonathan holds a javelin. The weapon is perhaps the one used by Jonathan's father, King Saul, when he tried to strike David (I Samuel 18: 11; 19: 10). He later used it against Jonathan who had attempted to intervene on David's behalf (I Samuel 20: 33).
