He was just a humble young man whom God chose to be king. He was a simple shepherd, who would come to be known as a warrior. He was a man who sought to know the heart of God. He was a boy with unwavering, unshakable faith. His name was David. From director Tim Chey comes an epic retelling of the Biblical story of man meets giant, giant meets God—David and Goliath. Based on the early life of the man who would become King David, as found in the Bible, David and Goliath brings the story of one small shepherd boy to life like never before.
High and hidden somewhere in the hills of Israel a small shepherd sat amongst the grass. Sometimes he dreamed, sometimes he counted his sheep, often he talked with God or wrote beautiful Psalms to praise his creator, but he was always alert, always ready to jump up, wield his slingshot and destroy any creature—man or beast—who would attempt to harm his small sheep. He was forgotten by everyone—his father, his brothers, his community—everyone that is, but God. Then one day a prophet of God named Samuel (played by Edward Hilton) comes looking for the forgotten shepherd boy named David (played by Miles Sloman). And when his family finally remembers where he is, Samuel anoints David King of Israel. It would seem the young man of the film David and Goliath went from obscurity to nobility without so much as lifting a finger. There is just one problem. . . Israel already has a king. His name is Saul (played by Orson Welles), and he is off currently fighting a ruthless battle against Israel’s long time enemies the Philistines headed by the ruthless King Asrod. Yet, God has chosen David as the new king of Israel, and so David sets off for the battle lines. When he arrives he finds the entire army of Israel terrified, captive to a fear of the Philistines “secret weapon”—a giant named Goliath (Jerry Sokolosky). Armed with only his slingshot, a few stones, and an unwavering faith in his God of deliverance David sets his sights to Goliath. Can he destroy the powerful opponent of Israel, with is country’s future hanging in the balance?
An inspiring and convicting story about a small shepherd boy who went from zero to hero with little more than a slingshot, the film David and Goliath may be about a shepherd boy named David, but it is even more about the power of David’s God. The story of David and Goliath is not as much about David versus Goliath, as it is about God versus a Giant. A giant of fear, a giant that inspired doubt, a giant that seemingly held the future of Israel at the point of his mighty sword. Yet, even in the fear and uncertainty, the story of David told in David and Goliath is a reminder to viewers of all ages that no mere man can hold power over God’s plan. David and Goliath is a reminder that God can use any individual—no matter how small, forgotten, or seemingly inadequate—to defeat even the most terrifying, seemingly unbeatable, and powerful of foes. The story of David and Goliath is less about a shepherd boy who has enough skill with a slingshot to kill a giant, it is about a shepherd boy who had enough faith in his God to trust him to do the impossible. It is a story about faith that God will see you even when you feel forgotten. It is a story about serving God in the mundane, the unseen, so that you are equipped to serve him in the spotlight. It is a story about remaining humble enough for God to use you, even when he exalts you. It is a story about following God to wherever he leads you—even to the foot of a giant. It is a story about finding courage, not in your own skill, but in God’s protection. It is a story about having unshakable, unbeatable, unquenchable, unconquerable faith that God can move mountains, see shepherd boys, raise up kings, and destroy giants—even Philistine giants. The film David and Goliath will challenge viewers off all ages to dig deep into God’s word. To see not only the story, but also the hidden truths within the story. It will inspire viewers to pull out God’s Word to find his promises and protection for themselves, just as David took heart in God’s promises and claimed his protection when he stood courageously before a deadly giant. It will encourage viewers to look into their own lives and see where they, like Saul, need to trust God’s protection, recognize his sovereignty, and find humility.
The epic story of David versus the Philistine giant is brought to screen like never before in the film David and Goliath. Journey with David as he goes from humble, obscure shepherd boy to hero and future king of Israel. With plenty of action and adventure to keep you on your toes, and Biblical truths to keep you grounded and encouraged in God’s sovereign plan, David and Goliath is a film that will delight and entertain viewers both young and old alike. As you watch David go from zero to hero through God’s mighty providence you will be reminded to trust God’s plan for your life; to remember that no one can thwart or undo the story God is writing for history; that even when you face the most deadly of opponents God’s protection is always there; that even when you feel unseen God is with you; and that even when you feel the most useless, God will use you for his glory.
