Two expositions from 1 Kings 1-11
The story of Solomon is intriguing. On the one hand he is famously wise and a brilliant leader, administrator and builder. On the other hand he readily succumbs to major temptations. His reign represents the highpoint of the people of God in the Old Testament but the fall is quick and drastic when Solomon dies. His reign gives us a glimpse of God’s purposes through the Old Testament, and the problems that thwart it being realised. Solomon’s legacy is ambiguous at best. The account of Solomon remains highly pertinent, for Christian leaders as well as for Christians in general.
