Bathsheba (Women in the Bible Series)
|TEXT: 2 Samuel 11, 12 and also 1 Kings 1, 2
Bathsheba was the wife of Uriah the Hittite and later became the wife of King David and mother of King Solomon. What can we gleam or learn from her if anything that has an application to our lives today? What does the text say? What does it not say? Ultimately, what is Yah saying? Why did the Father choose to include this story in the Word?
Study Note: It is not clear if Bathsheba is a Hittite woman, although she was indeed married to Uriah the Hittite prior to King David. Both Uriah and Bathsheba have Hebrew names (her name means “Daughter of Oath.” It also appears Bathsheba had Arbry (or Hebrew) lineage according to 2 Samuel 11:3 and 1 Chronicles 3:5. Scholars believe her father is either Ammiel or Eliam. Eliam is also named in 2 Samuel 23:34 as one of King David’s mighty men and from the city of Giloh, most likely the bottom part of Jerusalem. Bathsheba is also mentioned in Matthew 1:6.
