The atonement is the hub around which the rest of the gospel revolves around.

2 Nephi 9:8
  8 O the awisdom of God, his bmercy and cgrace! For behold, if the dflesh should rise no more our spirits must become subject to that angel who efell from before the presence of the Eternal God, and became the fdevil, to rise no more.

Alma 42:4
  4 And thus we see, that there was a atime granted unto man to repent, yea, a bprobationary time, a time to repent and serve God.
Mark 15:34
  34 And at the ninth hour Jesus cried with a loud voice, saying, aEloi, Eloi, lama sabachthani? which is, being interpreted, My God, my God, why hast thoubforsaken me?
The father left him to carry the load alone in order that the atonement would be valid.

Teacher passed out these scriptures and quotes to go with the lesson:
1. 1 Samuel 18:1, 3
2. 1 Samuel 16:11-13
3. 1 Samuel 18:4
4. 1 Samuel 18:2, 5
5. 1 Samuel 18:6-9
6. Quote by President Ezra Taft Benson:
"Saul became an enemy to David through pride. He was jealous because the crowds of Israelite women were singing that 'Saul hath slain his thousands, and David his ten thousands.'
"The proud stand more in fear of men's judgment than of God's judgment. ... 'What will men think of me?' weighs heavier than 'What will God think of me?' ...
"When pride has a hold on our hearts, we lose our independence of the world and deliver our freedoms to the bondage of men's judgment. The world shouts louder than the whisperings of the Holy Ghost. The reasoning of men overrides the revelations of God, and the proud let go of the iron rod" (in Conference Report, Apr. 1989, 4-5; or Ensign, May 1989, 5).
7. 1 Samuel 18:5, 14-16
8. 1 Samuel 18:20-25
9. 1 Samuel 19:1-7
10. 1 Samuel 19:9-10
11. 1 Samuel 19:11-18
12. 1 Samuel 20:1
13. 1 Samuel 20:23
14. 1 Samuel 24:1-3
15. 1 Samuel 24:4-5

Jonathan could've been jealous, since David was to be the next king, which could've been jonathan's birthright, but he was Closest of friends with David.
1 Samuel 19:9-10
  9 And the evil spirit afrom the Lord was upon Saul, as he sat in his house with his javelin in his hand: and David played with his hand.
  10 And Saul sought to smite David even to the wall with the javelin; but he slipped away out of Saul’s presence, and he smote the javelin into the wall: and David fled, and escaped that night.

The above scripture is a mistranslation.  Evil spirits do not come from the Lord.

"There is no other relationship quite like that which can and should exist between a boy and his dad. It can be one of the most nurturing, joyful relationships in life, one that can have a profound impact on who boys become and also on who dads become." (Elder M. Russel Ballard, "Fathers and Sons: A Remarkable Relationship", General Conference October 2009)

From the Bulletin
"Our Father in Heaven has given us, His children, much more than any mortal mind can comprehend. ...God the Father watches over us, fills our hearts with breathtaking joy, brightens our darkest hours with blessed peace, distills upon our minds precious truths, shepherds us through times of distress, rejoices when we rejoice, and answers our righteous petitions.
"He offers to His children the promise of a glorious and infinite existence and has provided a way for us to progress in knowledge and glory until we receive a fullness of joy. He has promised us all that He has.
"God does not look on the outward appearance. I believe that He doesn't care one bit if we live in a castle or a cottage, if we are handsome or homely, if we are famous or forgotten. Though we are incomplete, God loves us completely. Though we are imperfect, He loves us perfectly. Though we may feel lost and without compass, God's love encompasses us completely.
"...We are important to God not because of our resume but because we are His children. He loves every one of us, even those who are flawed, rejected, awkward, sorrowful, or broken. God's love is so great that He loves even the proud, the selfish, the arrogant, and the wicked.
"What this means is that, regardless of our cut-rent state, there is hope for us. No matter our distress, no matter our sorrow, no matter our mistakes, our infinitely compassionate Heavenly Father desires that we draw near to Him so that He can draw near to us."
- Dieter F. Uchtdorf, "The Love of God," Ensign, Nov 2009
