As I reread through the Gospels I wanted to highlight different thoughts and events taking place in this portion of the Bible. Hopefully this will Bless you as it has me. I'm not going to cover every little detail but only things I find interesting and feel its noteworthy to share. This may include going back and forth from the NT to the OT highlighting scriptures.

Matthews Gospel:

Matthew starts out with a list of genealogies; (1 The book of the genealogy of Jesus Christ, the Son of David, the Son of Abraham:).

While reading along I see he mentions Rahab and then Ruth. A few passages later we come upon the scriptures concerning David. What I find interesting here is that, Bathsheba is not mentioned at all by name.

Quote:

6 and Jesse begot David the king.

David the king begot Solomon by her who had been the wife of Uriah.


It just says by "her", who had been Uriah's wife. The scripture does mention Rahab the harlot by name.

I want to point out I'm not trying to prove anything or make an issue or try to find some new secret unheard of doctrine. I'm just looking at the way the Bible it is presenting certain events.

Concerning David and Bathsheba in the OT we do find a passage that shows babies go to heaven.

Quote:

22 And he said, “While the child was alive, I fasted and wept; for I said, ‘Who can tell whether the Lord will be gracious to me, that the child may live?’ 23 But now he is dead; why should I fast? Can I bring him back again? I shall go to him, but he shall not return to me.”


I was wondering a while back about this "age of accountability teaching", that most hold to. I'm not saying yea or nay on any of the teaching but at this point I am wondering why they come up with the age of 12 being the age of accountability. In other words if children die before this age we are told they go to heaven. They say Jesus was twelve years old when he was in the temple talking with the scribes and lawyers.

Maybe this is true but I would like to see further evidence in the Bible that brings out this point. Thinking of children in our day and time we do see kids under 12 who commit murder, sell drugs, commit fornication, etc. We see that some are given over to sin and wickedness.

If I was to rightly divide the Word of God I would think that when a child is completely innocent "not" knowing the way of good and evil would seem they would be in a situation to enter glory having no understanding of God or the way of Salvation through Jesus Christ.

Only God knows for sure. I can see millions of innocent babies who have been murdered at the hands of medical science or those born and taken early going on, or even children that are totally innocent of good and evil, dying and going to be with the Lord.

Anyway as I was reading I find this is the first place in this genealogy that gives a brief history of an event that took place, and does not mention this woman by name. You might want to read II Samuel chapter 11 and chapter 12.

There is so much taking place, the Lord is displeased with David over Uriah's wife but Nathan the prophet tells him that the Lord gave you Saul's wives. That whole concept is interesting concerning many things that took place while they were under the law. I don't see where God is displeased over them having many wives for an example. In New Testament times before the Lord started teaching I don't see this practice being mentioned as taking place in Israel.

The whole Bible is fantastic. We have so much today to be Thankful for as the Lord has included us into His Plans. Hope to share later as the Lord leads. May the Lord Bless everyone here as they press forth into a higher calling in Jesus Christ. God has a plan for all of us.
