B is for Bathsheba

My A to Z blogging theme is characters in (people from) the scriptures. Since my blog is a book blog, this theme would fit right in and help me strengthen a weakness at the same. How fantastic is that?!  This challenge is a blessing. Thank you A to Z Challenge team!  *Book: LDS quad combo scriptures: KJV Holy Bible, Book of Mormon, Doctrine & Covenants, Pearl of Great Price. (p)1989, (c)1979.

Bathsheba, wife of Uriah the Hittite, is known as the beautiful woman that caught King David's eye and subsequently both succumbed to adultery then later Bathsheba was found withchild as a result.  To cover his sin, King David arranges Uriah's death in battle by sending him in the front lines.  Upon Uriah's death, David marries Bathsheba. 

Bathsheba was daughter of Eliam, one of King David's warriors, and granddaughter of Athiophel, one of King David's chief advisors.  She had hand in securing that her son Solomon succeed David as king instead of David's oldest son Adonijah.

Find Bathsheba's story starting in 2 Samuel 11.


  1. Interesting choice but perfect given we are approaching Easter.

  2. A perfect choice as Solomon leads to much. When we lived in Israel for a year, we learned from Israelis that Bathsheba's story is one of their favorites.
