This story raises a myriad of what may very well be eternal questions. While (IMO) our human minds may never find or grasp satisfactory answers, it is possible we are led to greater heights of spiritual maturity simply in the asking:

Does G-d change His mind? Does prayer change G-d, or change US? Does the G-d who created, creates, and holds together the very fabric of space and time REALLY need blood to be satisfied? Why must the innocent suffer? ARE there any who are truly innocent? Is the child in this story a type of Christ? Is David?
