It is the true story of a young man who was zealous for the living God and who, by faith, overcame a giant warrior with a slingshot.

Men write songs, poetry, and works of fiction that incorporate figurative language. In the Bible, figurative language is used for the same purposes as in ordinary speech and it is interpreted by the same rules, but it is used for other purposes, as... Read More View the full article
