He had possession of David's (dad's) throne!
He had stores of wealth!
He had divinely imparted wisdom and mental capacities
He had great love and high hopes for his people!
His life of gold ended up a shipwreck!
He failed with his own wisdom!

A marvelous golden time for Israel!
David was a warrior, Solomon was a builder!
David made the kingdom, Solomon built the Temple!
This was the age of Homer, the beginning of Greek history.  Egypt and Assyria and Babylon were weak!
Israel was the most powerful kingdom in all the world!
Jerusalem was the most magnificent city on earth!
The Temple was the most splendid building on earth!
They came from all over the world to see...

Queen of Sheba

It all ends!  I Kings 11:26-43

The Golden Age of Israel - done!

Such a shame, eh!
Thanks, son!
