King David wanted desperately to build a permanent home for the Ark of the Covenant (Ark of God), but God told him that it was not his job. That task would fall on his son Solomon. See, David was a warrior king. Solomon was a king of peace and wisdom. Therefore, it was Solomon who got to build the magnificent structure that was to be a semi-permanent home. This temple, luxurious and marvelous that it was, would be destroyed by the Babylonians in 586 BC. Wait, we’re way not there yet!
It was in the Spring c. 967 BC, 480 years after the start of the Exodus. In the middle of the desert, God gave Moses the instructions on how to build the tabernacle. It was carefully specified and it was mobile.
Here, Solomon spares no expense. Check out the video at the bottom with a 3D tour of what Solomon’s temple may have looked like.
Let’s dig in….
