David & Goliath

In this sermon, Pastor T. C. enlists the help of bestselling author, Malcolm Gladwell, to take another look at this very familiar story. Rather than seeing David as the archetype of an underdog who miraculously defeats Goliath who is the archetype of an indomitable foe, what if we saw clues in the text itself which point in a very different direction? Maybe David is instead the archetype of someone who creatively employs unconventional thinking and sees through the arrogant threats of his enemy to see their vulnerability.
