David and Goliath

Answers Bible Curriculum Year 2, Quarter 2, Lesson 1

In this lesson, David Capoccia contrasts the faithful and courageous response of David with the fearful and distrustful response of the Israelite army when facing Goliath’s brazen challenge. David Capoccia shows from the Scriptures that God promised to grant the Israelites victory by His own strength and not the strength found in numbers, human valor, or weaponry. The biblical David models confidence in God’s promises and zeal for God’s glory, challenging Christians today to flee from sinful self-reliance and place their confidence in God’s enduring faithfulness.
