Thursday Great Books Study at 10:30 AM
  Dear Folks:   
We continue with our study of Women of the Bible by meeting Bathsheba in 
II Samuel 11:2-27, which I encourage you to read before our class this Thursday.

 Many of us have an understanding of her story as that of an innocent woman, married to a loyal soldier, who was seduced by David, the king. Not long after that, she reported to David that she was pregnant. What was David's response to her news? 

In our world of today, many women are coming forward reporting that they had been sexually abused by powerful men.Was Bathsheba a naive young woman taken advantage of by a powerful man?  Or was she part of a plot by David's son, Absalom, to bring down King David so that Absalom could take over the kingdom? Read II Samuel 12:1-14
What was God's response? II Samuel 11:27, 12:15-18

I look forward to being with you all this Thursday ! Bless you!

Consider: If you speak God's truth in a loving way, you may not always be popular, but you will be respected - and blessed. ( Extraordinary Women of the Bible, The American Bible Society)

Bless you all and please offer your comments by email to me,, especially if you are not able to be present for the discussion this Thursday!
