Imagine being summoned before the King of Israel. Imagine being the only son of the former king. Back in those days, the new king would normally wipe out the previous king's entire bloodline, to secure the throne. It didn't matter how many wonderful things were accomplished. Because of a bloodline, they were to be put to death. We as christians can relate to this through Adam and Eve. Because of their one sin, we deserve death. Because of their disobedience, we are all born with sin. 

Before David was king, he made a promise to Jonathan. After Jonathan died, David could have chosen to forget that promise. However, David loved and blessed Mephibosheth because of his love for and covenant with Jonathan. Mephibosheth is said to be “in Jonathan” and therefore received love and blessing from a king from whom he rightfully deserved death. Likewise, in the New Covenant, God the Father and God the Son have made a covenant that promises more love and blessing to those who are “in Christ,” the New Covenant keeper, than David ever showed Mephibosheth.
