Relive the famous Old Testament story of David and Goliath bible story!

Learn how David defeats Goliath and earns his place as one of the greatest heroes in the Bible! A story about courage, faith, and daring, this animated Bible video will transport you to the battlefield as you watch God work through a humble young boy.

Main Characters:
Saul; The Prophet Samuel; Jesse and his sons including David; the Israelites;  the Philistines; Goliath

Scriptural References:
I Samuel 15:1-35; I Samuel 16:1-23; I Samuel 17:2-49; I Samuel 18:1

Overall Theme:
God works in mysterious ways. When the proud and powerful King Saul disobeys God’s commands, God gives a shepherd’s young son, David, the power to slay the Philistine giant, Goliath. David will be the successor to the mighty Saul.

Summary:

David, the youngest of the eight sons of Jesse, delivered food oneday to his brothers on the battlefield. When David heard Goliath thePhilistine defying Israel and blaspheming God, he burned with anger.The youth went before King Saul and offered to fight the giant, whostood six cubits and a span (or 9' 6").

After David recounted stories about defeating a lion and a bear withhis bare hands, King Saul finally agreed to allow him to fight.However, David rejected the king's offer of armor and sword and insteadwent out to fight the giant Goliath with a staff and five smooth stonesfrom a nearby stream.

Saul, King of Israel, struggles to do as the Lord commands.  Through the Prophet Samuel, the Lord commands Saul to destroy the Amalekites and kill all their animals. Saul refuses to kill their animals, saying they will be offered as a sacrifice. Samuel tells the arrogant Saul that obedience is more important than sacrifice and tells Saul that for disobeying God’s command, Saul will lose his Kingdom.

Samuel visits a shepherd, Jesse.  He tells Jesse that the Lord has a need for one of his sons.  Jesse introduces his eight sons to Samuel, including the youngest -  David.  To everyone’s amazement, God tells Samuel to anoint David as King of Israel, even though Saul is still the formidable king.  Neither Samuel nor anyone else knows how God will work His will.

The Philistines attack Israel with a new weapon – a giant named Goliath.  Jesse’s sons prepare for battle.  Since he is too young for the battlefield, David is kept behind to tend the flocks.

The Philistines offer the Israelites a challenge: single combat between each side’s strongest man.  For 40 days Goliath taunts Saul.  When David hears Goliath defy the armies of the Living God, indeed defying God Himself, David knows he must accept the challenge.

When Saul offers his armor to David, David replies that his faith is enough.  With one stone from his sling, David slays the mighty Goliath.  Even though the Israelites have beaten back the Philistines, Saul knows that he, too, has been defeated.

Background:
When David became the chosen one of God, he seemed the most unlikely candidate.  A mere boy and the son of a shepherd, David hardly seemed the proper person to vindicate the Israelites on the battlefield against Goliath. Yet God gave David wisdom, strength and courage.
