Psalm 51: Repentance, Re-creation, and Renewal

 

Summary:

In this study of the great penitential psalm, we review the account of David, Bathsheba, and Uriah. We spend a great deal of time discussing sin, its progression, and its consequences both eternal and temporal and our sometimes distorted view of sin and punishment.  We then launch into the first few verses of the psalm itself with topics such as God's graciousness and its potential abuse through presumption, dealing with both sin and its causes, and our being aware of our sins.
