GOD'S WOMEN: BATHSHEBA

In this next of the series of God’s Women, Fr. Mike recounts the famous story of David and Bathsheba.

David follows Saul as king of the Jews. He had nine wives when he had relations with Bathsheba. But that wasn’t enough. He desired her when he saw her in the garden not too far from his own dwelling.

You know the story well.

Bathsheba becomes pregnant with the king’s child. So David connives to have her husband, Uriah, killed in battle by having him put in the front lines. Much happens.

Fr. Mike then applies the story to our lives. What about adultery today? Why does it happen? What can be done to prevent it? He also examines how we make moral decisions.

WORD: THE WAY with Rev. Donald Senior, CP
​​​​​​​
Many, many years ago for Catholics there was a fear of private interpretation of the Bible. For that reason Catholics were late in reading the Bible. Fortunately, that is no longer true.  Actually and with respect, that private interpretation by Fundamentalism can be a problem today.  

In this interview Fr. Mike talks with Rev. Donald Senior, CP, about studying Scripture. Fr. Senior, a renowned Scripture scholar, was President of Catholic Theological Union in Chicago for 23 years. He gives hints about how to go about studying the Bible in the most helpful ways. Today there are many aids out there, including videos that can help us.  He also gives hints about how to study in groups.

They then go into the importance of scholarship in the study of the Bible and why that is so important in revealing the nuances of the texts and how it affects the meaning for us today.
