Confessing Sexual Sin (Psalm 51)

Nathan confronts David (Julius Schnorr von Carolsfeld)Where do you confess your sexual sins?

David confessed his in the best-selling book of all time.

I probably wouldn’t want to do that.  (In case you weren’t sure, I was talking about the Bible, not God Behaving Badly.)

We discussed this topic in a recent class after studying Psalm 51, David’s confession after committing adultery.  Read about it here in this recent post for Biblical Seminary’s Faculty blog: Confessing Sexual Sin (Psalm 51).

  1. Have you read “Misreading Scripture Through Western Eyes?” It is fantastic. The authors deal with the David & Bathsheba story through the lens of honor and shame. It blew my mind!
