Week 20 - David and Goliath -
Bible Time FUN Through the Bible
Kids Bible Lesson 20 - David and Goliath

Welcome to week 20!

This week your children learn the story of David and Goliath. Goliath, a giant in the Philistine army, challenged anyone in Israel to fight him. David was a young shepherd boy standing among the scared Israelite army. He made a decision to trust God and fight the giant. In this Bible lesson, the children learn that you should trust in God because He is the one that truly gives you the strength to win every battle. Have fun learning this amazing story!

If you haven’t read the introduction to Bible Time yet, I recommend you read the outline about the Bible lessons for children first.

  • During story, draw attention to the key concepts for this lesson.

  • Don't forget to ask questions related to the story, for example, “Did God help David defeat Goliath?”

  • Throughout the Bible lesson we reiterated how God is bigger than any giant we may face.

  • After the Bible story and discussion session, we stand up and do the interactive rhyme found in the Bible storybook
