The most thought-provoking questions often come from 6-year-olds... The What's-your-favorite-Bible-story thread brought up the child's question, "What was Bathsheba doing taking a bath outside?" This got me thinking, "What was David doing on the roof of his palace?" Can we assume that the palace roof was higher than other structures surrounding it, giving a person up there a view inside spaces that most folks would've thought were private? Can we further assume that David had noticed this? So is it possible, or even likely, that he went up on his roof in the first place expecting that a voyeuristic moment might present itself? I've always told this story, and heard it told, as if David was innocently on his roof and -oops!- he just happened to see Bathsheba and was smitten. But might his initial sin have been more intentional than that; a little "harmless curiosity" that snowballed? What do you say?
