Video: Should We Read The Story Of David And Goliath Primarily As An Underdog Narrative?

Today’s question: “Was David’s victory over Goliath a miracle? Was he really an underdog or was this a case of misperception as to who was the favorite? We know it is not uncommon for smaller people to defeat larger people in fights.”

Within this episode I recommend Peter Leithart’s commentary on 1&2 Samuel, A Son To Me, available for purchase here.
