What might David and Johnathon’s relationship teach us about friendship?

Some modern readers have suggested that David and Johnathon were in a same-sex sexual relationship because of their open displays of affection. Others, including Pastor Andrew, would say that such a conclusion is imposing our own hyper-sexualized cultural assumption onto our reading of the Bible, especially as there is no direct biblical evidence of a sexual relationship between David and Johnathon.
