Where David Defeated Goliath: Shephelah | The Holy Land | Season 2 – Episode 8

The fertile Elah Valley is highly desired land in what is known as the Shephelah. The Mediterranean is west, and Bethlehem and Jerusalem are to the east. Here, one of the most well-loved Bible stories took place: David defeating the giant, Goliath, with a stone and slingshot. But Jack Beck shares the rest of the dramatic story including a national security crisis, King Saul who failed to lead his people, and a simple shepherd boy who God prepared for greatness. As we listen to the story, we can ask ourselves: Will we imitate David by putting our trust in God to equip us for the challenge? Or will we shrink back in fear like Saul?

We start our journey in the Shephelah with Peter and Batsheva who own a vineyard. As we walk the land, we come to understand how this agriculturally rich area was something worth fighting for. Jack recaps the drama of the David and Goliath ordeal, yet brings to light the story behind the story . . . that a young shepherd boy chosen and equipped by God rose to the challenge, while King Saul failed in his mission. And in the mix, we have a few laughs as Jack demonstrates why his expertise is Bible teaching, not operating a slingshot.

So join us for this behind-the-scenes look at the famous David vs. Goliath story and learn that our choices will either move us away from God or toward Him.

The Holy Land: Connecting the Land with Its Stories Season 2 is an eight-episode series hosted by Dr. John (Jack) Beck that takes you to regions throughout Israel to experience the land, the culture, and the customs that surround the sacred stories of the Bible.
