A very accurate depicting of David's life
15 February 1999 | by (Michigan USA) – See all my reviews

This is a very accurate portrayal of David from teen years to his death. I could follow along in the Bible with the movie. I like how they use God's name in Hebrew Yahweh throughout. It was filmed in Israel so the setting was real.
