Old Testament Notes


            Bathsheba, the beautiful wife of Uriah, was taking a bath, when King David saw her and fell in love. He organized Uriah to be killed and married Bathsheba. Their first son died, that was God’s punishment, but their second son, Solomon, became the most famous King of Jews after David's death.
