|David and Goliath|
From Hanna-Barbera's animated series depicting the tales of the bible, "David and Goliath" tells the tale of David's leadership and determination to follow his God. David uses the strength he finds in his faith and a mere slingshot in defense against the brute Goliath, and is thus able to prevent the people of Israel from becoming enslaved. The video is recommended for older children, along with parental guidance.
The kingdom of Israel faces a fearsome threat when the Philistine army marches across its borders. At the forefront of the invaders is the giant warrior Goliath. This tall behemoth issues a challenge: he will take on an Israelite champion in single combat and the tribe of the loser will be enslaved. For 40 days Goliath repeats the challenge and there are no comers. Finally one boy does step forth: David, a shepherd boy who armed with nothing more than his sling...and a faith in God as towering as his mighty foe.
