This is a 17 slide, highly animated, power point presentation on Religion – Children’s Bible Stories – David & Goliath. Each of the slides are editable so you can modify the slides to the presentation as needed. I have also included a slide called “Think about the Story” for student review and questions.
The Israelites & Philistines were at war. The Philistines had many giants living in their land. One of the most feared giant was Goliath. Every morning and every evening for 40 days he shouted to the Israelites in his big deep voice, "Hey, you guys! I dare you to find one man to fight me. If he can beat me we will become your servants, but if I win you will all become our servants."
David's father Jesse called David out of the fields and asked him to take some food to his brothers and report back how they are doing. As David approached them he heard Goliath shouting his challenge like he did every morning. "Isn't someone going to stand up to this man?" Why was everyone so SCARED of this big bully? God was on their side, so why were they afraid? Goliath was making them look STUPID! And no one was doing ANYTHING!
David told the men in the army, "I will fight this giant Philistine." The man laughed, "Oh, you're just a boy! In fact, you should be going home now. Your brothers have their food, so go!" But before he could leave, King Saul heard that someone would fight Goliath. He eventually agreed to let David fight the giant.
David hiked over to the valley where the giant was standing on the other side. He then went to a stream nearby and found 5 smooth stones, put them in a pouch around his waist, and with his sling he went to Goliath. As David approached Goliath, Goliath looked at David and thought it was a joke. "What is this?" Goliath bellowed loudly. "The Israelites send me a BOY to fight? I will feed your skin to the birds!"
David shivered at the thought, then straightened his back and lifted his chin. "But God is on my side. You can't hurt me! And I'm NOT scared!" But David said to him without fear, "You fight with a sword and I come with God on my side and today everyone will know that there is one true God in this land."
Reaching into his pouch he pulled out a stone, put it into his slingshot and shot it at Goliath. The stone had hit him right between his eyes and suddenly Goliath started to lose his balance. He fell with a loud thud right on his face. David had done it, he beat the giant Philistine! When the rest of the Philistines saw this, they ran away and David became a hero to all the people in Israel.
