Name of BookThere is the first book of Samuel and the second book of Samuel, in the Good News Bible. I am doing the first book of Samuel.

Time Frame of BookThe book, 1 Samuel, was written a very long time ago. It was approximately written in the 1040 to 1080 B.C.

1 Samuel

StoryThe name of the story I choose is... David Defeats Goliath (chapter 17).

The Philistine army had gathered for war against Israel. There was a Philistine giant named, Goliath, who was over nine feet tall and wearing full armor. He came out for forty days, mocking and challenging the Israelites to fight. Saul, the King of Israel, and the army were terrified and scared to death of Goliath. One day, David, who was the youngest son of Jesse, was sent to the battle lines to bring news to his brothers. David saw Goliath and volunteered to fight him. Sadly, no one believed in David. The people of israel believed that David could not defeat the giant, Goliath. After a while, King Saul finally agreed to let David fight against Goliath. David went out to meet Goliath, with his shepherd's stick, five smooth stones from the stream and sling. The giant started to walk towards David and said, "...and I will give your body to the birds and animals to eat.." (1 S. 17:44). David said to the giant, Goliath, "You are coming against me with sword, spear and javelin, but I..." (1 S. 17:45). As Goliath moved forwards David, to kill him, David reached into his pouch and slung one of his stones at Goliath's head. When the Philistines saw that their hero, Goliath, was dead, they ran away.

This story relates to my own personal experience. When I read this story, it reminded me of my older brother, who is 6'2" and I. I am 5'2". Further, my brother would resemble the giant, Goliath, from Philistine, since he is bigger and taller and I would resemble David from Israel, since I am smaller and shorter. Furthermore, if my brother and I were to compete in a sport, for example swimming, one would believe that my brother would win. I find this totally unfair and rude because one would be concluding that my brother would win for the reason that he is taller and bigger than me. In the story, they did not believe that David would defeat the giant, Goliath, because the giant was enormous. Even though, they did not believe in David, he did defeat Goliath, from Philistine. In our society today, people are being judged by how they look. More specifically, people are being judged by their size. David defeats Goliath, is an incredible and amazing story. I believe this because the story has an amazing and extraordinary message. The message of this story, from 1 Samuel, is to never ever judge one by how they appear because you will never know what they are capable of. For instance, I was capable of beating my brother in swimming, and David was capable of defeating the giant, Goliath. To conclude, this story, David Defeats Goliath, relates to my own personal experience, because David and I are extremely identical.
