The giant Philistine Goliath challenged the armies of Israel to send out their greatest warrior to fight him in single combat. Filled with fear, the Israelites cowered in their tents–until an unlikely representative came forward. His name was David, the son of Jesse. With a stone from his slingshot, he crushed Goliath’s head, and then ran over to cut off Goliath’s head with the giant’s own sword! But the story doesn’t end there. After the great battle, David took Goliath’s head and buried it on a hill outside of the future Jerusalem–a hill that came to be known as “Golgatha,” the place of the skull. David recognized that his victory over Goliath was a preview the even greater victory that Jesus, the Son of David, would have on that hill! Find out why in this lesson!
