Strange parallels between Luke Skywalker VS Death Star 1 and the biblical story of David VS Goliath.
The first thing you have is the mismatch.
Luke Skywalker in his X-wing fighter with R2D2 in the back VS an artificial created moon sized space station that destroys planets with its main weapon. There should be no way that one X-wing should have been able to take it out.
Just as David a shepherd boy VS basically a giant and full sized man that also had on body armor. There should be no way that David armed with only a sling and stones should have been able to beat a warrior champion of the Philistines.
Then you have the element of FAITH.
Other X-wing pilots had tried and failed to land that special shot into the "weak point" of the Death Star. They were essentially allowing computers or GPS to navigate for them. The computer told them that they were "this far away and going this fast" etc etc, yet they failed. Basically a GPS system. Then Luke hear's a phantom voice of Obi-Wan tell him to "use the force Luke" so he then turns OFF his targeting computer much to the dismay of those back at the base. And fires his one in a million shot and DESTROYS the death star. Luke was acting by FAITH.
David did something similar. Common sense would tell you that he shouldn't win that battle. Many told him he couldn't. But David believed that God would deliver Goliath into his hands, and although David had brought with him 5 sling stones, it was one that struck Goliath in his temple (weak point) that took him down. David was acting by FAITH. You could also consider the number 5 having a significance to Babylon, the statue in Babylonian king Nebuchadnezzar's dream which he got the prophet Daniel to explain to him, having the 5 material zones and the one stone that struck it on the feet and broke it into pieces. That stone would be like God or the Word of God. The only one that can have everlasting dominion and always win.
Oh well, just thought I would point that out and some out there might find this post interesting.
