We at The Church Sofa, can not pass the book of 1 Samuel, without taking some time to look at Chapter 17. The home of one of this epic battles of The Old Testament. The original David v Goliath battle itself. This battle story has led to the use of “David vs Goliath” to describe almost any story were someone has to face overwhelming odds, and probably has no chance of winning.
We’re going to take a look at how Goliath has been represented over the years.
The Classic Goliath
There are the traditional paintings that have been created over the centuries.
The Updated Goliath
We have the computer generated characters within games.
The Friendly Looking Monster
There are also Disney style monster Goliaths.
The team you have no hope of beating.
Goliath can also look like the football match your team have no chance of winning in. (Exeter City managed a 0-0 draw at Old Trafford)
The Massive Monster
Goliath seems to symbolise the unbeatable monster.
The thing is:
That unbeatable monster, can just be waking up tomorrow morning.
