Bathsheba’s #MeToo

Oct 21, 2018 | Amy Epp

Every woman has a story in which her body was in some way violated by a man.  In which her consent was not sought.  For Bathsheba her #MeToo moment changed the entire direction of her life.  When David summoned and assaulted her she had no recourse.  While there’s very little redemption in this story, there’s a little good news if we can learn from the prophet who confronted David in his sin.  We too are called to prophetic naming and calling out of those who use their power to hurt, take and abuse.
