David & Goliath *Hood Version

If any of you have ever heard me tell a bible story, then you know I LOVE me some bible from the hood.  Jesus and his homies radically shook the world for God’s kingdom and they didnt care who they offend on the way, as long as they were following God’s will. {Im actually singing out loud “Im a lyrical gangsta” right now as I type. LOL} My friends tease me that as I get more articulated, I’m still “Becky from the Bible” (sung in the “Jenny from the Block” tune).

So recently, I had the privilege of hearing another bible lover’s “hood” version of David and Goliath. This dude had me on the edge of my seat and laughing as he shared insight on this often told story of scripture with a fresh new perspective for our culture today. So start dinner, turn this on, and enjoy this 30 minute story for a new generation and make sure if you got kids, you let them tune in too!  

But wait there’s more…

In case all of ya’ll intellectuals (yes, I can be one often too) want a scientific version of David & Goliath (not a theological one) THEN listen to my homeboy and best selling author Malcolm Galdwell explain HIS perspective after you hear Spence. I’d love to hear your thoughts on the two after you listen, so comment below!!!!

Let me introduce you to the funny, talented Spencer:

And, Here’s Mr. Gladwell’s: “The story has transcended its biblical origins to become a common shorthand for unlikely victory. But, asks Malcolm Gladwell, is that really what the David and Goliath story is about?”
