DVD 5: The Philistines Song!

Get the Full Version

Check out this song from DVD 5: Israel Gets A King! [Saul, David & Solomon]

BROTHER LOUIE

Israel had a new enemy in town – the meanest buncha fellas they’d ever seen! They were called the “Philistines.”

CHUCK WAGGIN (singing)

Oh, the Philistines were big and mean. And tall and strong and hairy! The toughest dudes you ever seen! To Israel, they looked scary! So they said to Samuel, “Here’s the thing – It’s time for us to have a king – With crown and robe and fancy ring – Ridin’ high upon the saddle – he’ll lead us into battle!”

SUNDAY SCHOOL LADY

Clive – where’d the Philistines come from?

CLIVE

Ian? The slide, please!

IAN

Righto…

CLIVE

Um – Ian… It’s upside down!

IAN

Sorry!

CLIVE

Right. The Philistines were a group of people who arrived in Canaan from the sea around 1100 BC.

Archeologists today believe they came from the island of Crete. They were tough, aggressive, and good at making weapons from iron, which was new at the time. They gave the Israelites LOTS of trouble!
