Question:

Was Bathsheba black, in the Bible?

Answer:

No one knows if Bathsheba was black or not. We can break down the name to Bath and Sheba. Bath means "Daughter of", and Sheba means Yemen, or South Arabia. The problem is that we do not know the makeup of the people in that region in 1000 b.c.
