About the Movie
After years of fighting in the Promised Land, the people of Israel ask God again and again for a king to help them in battle. God answers, giving them three kings in a row – Saul, David, and Solomon. In Israel Gets a King! (1 & 2 Samuel), Saul is chosen first first. He is big and strong, but he doesn’t always listen to God, so it’s time to pick a new king – a boy named David, who defeats the Philistine giant Goliath. Even though David messes up sometimes – like when he makes someone else’s wife his own – God loves David and makes him a special promise, the Davidic Covenant. When David dies, it’s time to welcome another new king. This time, David’s son Solomon takes the throne and, in a smart move, asks God for wisdom. Solomon’s wisdom becomes known throughout the world, and he builds an amazing temple for the Lord. But when he builds a palace for himself that’s even bigger, it turns out to be an unwise move, and Israel is in trouble again.
Great for the whole family!
This whole series is great to have on hand for visits from my niece and nephews! They love the characters and it’s a great tool to talk through the sometimes tough to navigate topics presented in the Old Testament.
Keeps getting better!
This series just keeps getting better the more we watch. We loved this episode! It has some great Bible stories like David and Goliath and King Solomon. We’ll definitely be watching again and again!
