    New York Times Best Selling Author Rabbi David Wolpe

    in Education

    The Total Tutor Neil Haley will interview Rabbi David Wolpe.


    David Wolpe, author of David: The Divided Heart (Yale University Press), investigates one of the most perplexing, powerful and enigmatic figures in the Bible. Wolpe, who has been deemed by Newsweek as one of “the most influential rabbi’s in America” takes a fresh look at the man, the myth and the legend.  The myth of David slaying Goliath is well-known; Goliath of Gath challenges any man to come and fight him. David, the young and sheepish son of Jesse, shoots Goliath with his slingshot and ultimately decapitates him with a sword.  David, the underdog wins the battle, transforming himself into a hero.


     


    Wolpe further examines David’s actions and his character, painting a different portrait of David.

    John Carver Show - David and Goliath (Malcolm Gladwell)

    in Self Help

    The biblical story of David and Goliath is probably the most well-known underdog story in the world.


    Goliath is a giant warrior who battles a much-smaller shepherd boy, David. David shoots him with a stone and a sling right between the eyes, Goliath topples over, and David kills him.


    David and Goliath is "a metaphor for improbable victories," Gladwell explained during a Ted Talk in September. "Why do we call David an underdog? Well, we call him an underdog because he's a kid, a little kid, and Goliath is this big, strong giant. We also call him an underdog because Goliath is an experienced warrior, and David is just a shepherd. But most importantly, we call him an underdog because Goliath is outfitted with all of this modern weaponry, this glittering coat of armor and a sword and a javelin and a spear, and all David has is this sling."


    The first mistake history has made when retelling the tale of David and Goliath is to assume that David was a helpless boy who only had a wimpy slingshot to protect himself, Gladwell said.


    That's because there were three types of warriors in ancient times: people who fought with slings and archery (David), foot soldiers who were good at up-close combat with swords (Goliath), and people on horseback.


    Goliath was a foot soldier; David was a slinger. When put this way, and you note that Goliath and David were fighting from somewhat of a distance, it makes David's weapon choice seem smart. He's good at attacking with accuracy from afar.


    It also makes you understand why Goliath was in trouble the moment David whipped out his sling. If David never got close to him, how could he attack and defeat him?


    "Goliath is a sitting duck. He doesn't have a chance," Gladwell concludes.
