E100-36: 2 Samuel 11:1 – 12:25: David and Bathsheba?

Bathsheba goes to David by Francesco Salviati (1510–1563)

These two chapters mark the turning point in David’s story.

They offer vital clues also to how we “read” biblical narratives.

  • Nathan’s story within a story provides hints, abouit the nature of narrative meaning
  • David’s strange behaviour  during his child’s illness and on his death provides both a clue to an interpretative rule, and some good practice 🙂
