Jesus Is a Better David

Dec 10, 2023

We have this tendency, precisely because we’re Americans, to cast ourselves in the role of the hero. When we read the story of David and Goliath, we naturally insert ourselves in David's place. WE face a lot of giants, and with God's help, WE can slay them, just like David did. Only that's a lot of pressure. Not to mention the fact that, when it comes to THE story (history), we're NOT the hero. God is. What if David actually points to Jesus? What if Jesus is a better David? A better king? A better shepherd? A better deliverer? What if that's truly good news?
