David and Bathsheba
Bible Study Lesson

This David and Bathsheba Bible study lesson is about one of the world's best known affairs. The criticism of David's affair with Bathsheba is usually directed at David, but both parties sinned knowingly.

"A highway shall be there, and a road, and
it shall be called the Highway of Holiness.
The unclean shall not pass over it...
Only the redeemed shall walk there"

Isaiah 35:8-9

In his act the comedian Flip Wilson often said, "The Devil made me do it." That line may have made for good comedy, but it was bad doctrine, for we always sin knowingly. In this lesson we will discover that:

  • We trod upon a Holy Highway which is restricted only to believers.
  • Satan has no authority to step onto the Holy Highway and force a Christian to sin.
  • Satan is a bait tosser. All he can do is toss enticing bait onto the Holy Highway in hopes that believers will pick up the tempting bait.
  • Like David and Bathsheba, we always sin knowingly. When we spot the tempting bait our will makes a conscious decision to either ignore the bait, or pick it up.
  • There is always some degree of negative consequences for picking up the bait.
  • Adam and Eve both sinned knowingly when they ate the forbidden fruit. To this day we continue to live with the negative consequences of their decision.

This study on the life of David gives us the secret for ignoring Satan's tempting bait and walking on in victory. If this is your desire then this lesson will be of value to you.

Rev. Dr. Dean, Pastor- If you are looking for a man with a fresh perspective to lead your church to another level, consider inviting Jack to come in and lead a series of teaching sessions. Our church thoroughly enjoyed the time. He is competent in handling the scriptures, and has great insight about Biblical truths that are often neglected or simply not taught by design in so many of our churches today. You will not be disappointed if you embark on such a course.

Connie - I can't put the book Under the Cloud down!

David (a Sunday School teacher for Young Marrieds) - It is a great teaching resource that I know is reliable. There are specific topics that I can easily access for use in my class like "The Rock" and I especially liked the section on "Educating the Flesh."

Mary Anne - Under the Cloud is not just another man's opinion, it is all based on Scripture.

Antoinette (who has already purchased over 30 books) - As I give the book to friends and clients, I say to them "put down all the other books you are reading and read this one! I promise you Under the Cloud will change your life."

Julie - I started reading Under the Cloud yesterday and felt enveloped in love, as well as wonderful memories of being taught amazing and powerful truths through two incredible servants of God. Thank You!

Name withheld by us - I will send my husband and son off to the Middle East in Sept. for their second deployment with a copy of your book. (Likely to Afghanistan).

Karen - I am really enjoying your book. It sure is one that I will go back to. I have already marked it up.

John & Jane - We are both enjoying your book so much. Please bring us 10 more signed copies on Thursday.

Rob - My only criticism of the book is that I eventually ran out of pages.

Sally - Your book is fantastic! I just wish I had read it 20 years ago. It would have answered a lot of my questions.

Wayne - I loved the section on "Rigged Fights."
