The story behind these games and puzzles about David can be found in 1 Samuel chapter 16.
David was the youngest son of a man called Jesse. They lived in Bethlehem. His job was to look after the sheep. He had to keep them safe from any dangers and find them food and water. One day, Samuel, a man of God, arrived at Jesse’s house. God had told him to go there, where he would be shown which of Jesse’s sons God had chosen to be king. Samuel looked at all the sons, but it wasn’t until David – the youngest – came home from the fields that God showed Samuel, this was the one who would be king over Israel. This story can be found in 1 Samuel chapter 16.
