Goliath (/ɡəˈlaɪəθ/; Hebrew: גָּלְיָת, Modern Golyat, Tiberian Golyāṯ; Arabic: جالوت Ǧulyāt (Christian term), Ǧālūt (Qur’anic term)) of Gath (one of five city-states of the Philistines) is the Biblical warrior defeated by the young David in the Book of Samuel. Post-Classical Jewish traditions stressed his status as the representative of paganism, in contrast to David, the champion of the God of Israel. Christian tradition sees David’s battle with Goliath the victory of God’s king over the enemies of God’s helpless people as a prefiguring of Jesus’ victory over sin on the cross and the Church’s victory over Satan.

T here are so many great stories in the Bible to teach kids about Jesus. Here is a list of five of my favorites.
He stopped at a well where a woman was getting water. Jesus offered her everlasting water. She did not understand what that was. Jesus explained that people who drink water from the well would have to return and drink again. But Jesus was offering salvation—eternal life. He compared salvation to the water. Jesus said that if she would accept the salvation that He was offering then she would never have to be saved again. He called this everlasting water.
This is the story that started it all. Without the story of Creation, the rest of the Bible wouldn’t exist. It is the single moment in history that displayed God’s power more than any other. He simply spoke and the earth, sun, moon, stars, animals, and plants were created. He breathed into the dust and humans were formed. Have fun sharing this story with your children and talking about how a powerful God also cares about even the smallest details.
The story of Noah is one of extreme faith and unexplained patience. Noah built a big ark, even though it made absolutely no sense. Though he didn’t understand, he trusted God through each step of the plan. He was patient in the journey, not knowing how the story would end. If you and your children want to read more stories about other heroes in the bible who displayed faith like Noah, check out Esther: The Belle of Patience as she teaches our daughters how patience is a superpower that helps us wait and trust in God’s perfect timing.
