In the Holy Bible, it was recorded in the book of 1 Samuel 17: 34-36 that David, who was a young teenager and a Shepard killed a lion with his bare hands after the animal tried to kill one of his flock. According to the Bible verse, it was David that revealed this to King Saul while he was trying to face Goliath, the Philistines.

2. Benaiah who was the son of Jehoiada.

Another man that exhibited bravery and killed a lion with his bare hands in the Bible is Benaiah. Although, he might not be known to many but the Bible recorded in the book of 2 Samuel chapter 23 verse 20 that Benaiah killed a lion with his bare hands.

For clarity's sake, Benaiah was one of King David's finest men and he was so brave that he was ranked amongst the best in the Isreal army. One of his bravest moments was when he killed a lion and he did that inside a pit on a snowy day.
