DAVID is a simple shepherd whose destiny is to become the greatest king Israel has ever known. He’s brave, with the foolhardiness -- and sometimes foolishness -- of youth. He’s the youngest son of 7, and has always yearned for a bigger place in the world, beyond his small village of Bethlehem. David is handsome and charismatic, and if that doesn’t catch women’s attention, his skill at playing the harp will. David goes for what he wants -- he may be terrified at facing down a predatory lion, but he’ll take the first swing with his sling nonetheless. David’s bold actions may be seen as impulsive, but they belie a greater calculation and ambition.
