Superbook takes Chris,Joy and Gizmo during the time of King David at different points of his life.
In the first part,we get the main characters watch David tending the sheep.Unexpectedly,he was called by his father Jesse as Samuel was about to anoint the next King of Israel among his sons. Surprisingly, the youngest son - David was anointed as the person to succeed King Saul,who apparently has displeased God a lot.
The second part has Superbook taking the main characters to the time when the Israelites battle the Philistines.They get to witness many events in David's life from killing the giant Goliath;his immense popularity among the Israelites that got King Saul extremely jealous; and the rivalry the developed between the two the led to the point of King Saul trying to take David's life but was unsuccessful.Interesting,David had the opportunity to kill King Saul but did not attempt to do so.
This was a great episode as we witness many events of King David - one of the more popular Biblical characters particularly in the Old Testament. We realize many things from having God on our side would enable us to achieve a lot of things just like what David did.Also,it reminds us that arrogance and forgetting God could lead us nowhere like King Saul did.Finally,we also learn the value of humility as exhibited by David.He was definitely rewarded with a lot of blessings unlike King Saul.
