Solomon Built It

  David had proposed building the temple but God did not allow him to do it. But God promised that his son would build it. In time, Solomon built the great Jewish temple (which Muslims today say never existed). It was a magnificent structure, very ornate, richly done, taking seven years and thousands of workers to construct.

  After it was complete there was gigantic dedicatory celebration with thousands of animals sacrifices, rituals, etc. God was pleased with the temple.

  But more than the temple was required. God told Solomon his faithfulness and obedience to God would determine his future. The temple did not prevent him from going astray.
