Details, Please (Part 3)
Following the murder of Bathsheba’s husband, the prophet Nathan confronts David with a story of a rich man who steals a poor man’s sheep. David is furious until Nathan announces, “Thou art the man” (12:7). Chastened, David repents and God forgives his sins – but their consequences will affect David powerfully. The baby conceived in the tryst dies, and David’s family begins to splinter apart.
