1 Kings 7 and 2 Chronincles 4

Extra Credit Question at the bottom

So the pinnacle of Solomon’s reign was the Temple.  However, after the 7 year construction of the Temple, Solomon decided to build his Palace which was so massive it took 13 years.  We already saw the offerings and donations that funded the Temple.  Now, who is going to pay for the Palace??  Hmmmm.  This might become an issue.  Money always is.  In the meantime, let’s compare the two.

Extra Credit Question:  One of the pictures has a compass rose on it.

  1. What direction was the entrance of the Temple?
  2. Why did it face that direction?

  1. So I just asked my husband in passing and he said: “The sun rises in the East”. So I said, “yes it does”. Then he asked me what I thought and I gave him 2 more reasons. He said “those are ok I guess” You have to know how competitive he is! He thinks he is Google! Before I go to bed I will post my 2 other reasons, but I am sure there are so many we don’t even think of as mere humans!
