The iconic story of young David’s epic encounter with Goliath has captured imaginations for millennia. The classic underdog narrative resonates with all people as they face insurmountable odds—their figurative giants. But is the history of David and Goliath, as well as the history of their respective nations, only figurative, or is the history as the Bible describes a literal account of what took place?

On today's program, host Brent Nagtegaal takes a look at two cities that have everything to do with those two men; Gath and Khirbet Qeiyafa.
