Call To Die

Then [Jesus] said to them all, "If anyone wants to come with Me, he must deny himself, take up his cross daily, and follow Me. For whoever wants to save his life will lose it, but whoever loses his life because of Me will save it. (Luke 9:23-24, HCSB)

David vs. Goliath Plotline

[This morning I had the privilege of teaching Sunday school at New Georgia Baptist Church. The text was 1 Samuel 17. Here is the outline for the text, which I distributed to the class.]

Exposition (vv 1-25)
¨    The Philistines arrive (vv 1-3)
¨    Introduction of Goliath (vv 4-10)
¨    Saul and the Israelites are in fear (v 11)
¨    David is re-introduced (vv 12-25)

Rising Action (vv 26-40)
¨    David, offended by Goliath, asks about him and is rebuffed by his brother, Eliab (vv 26-30)
¨    David is brought before Saul (v 31)
¨    David volunteers to fight Goliath (v 32)
¨    Saul seeks to dissuade David (v 33)
¨    David gives his resume`: the story of the lion then the bear (vv 34-37)
¨    Saul attempts to place his armor on David (vv 38-39)
¨    David arms himself for battle (v 40)

Climax (vv 41-51)
¨    David and Goliath meet for battle (v 41)
¨    Goliath disdains and ridicules David (vv 42-44)
¨    David rebukes Goliath in the name of the LORD (vv 45-47)
¨    The combatants meet, and David kills Goliath (vv 48-51)

Falling Action (vv 52-54): The Israelites route the Philistines.

Resolution (vv 55-58): Saul takes notice of David.
