Re:Verse passage – 1 Chronicles 28:1-10 (day six)
Solomon and his temple were both a disappointment. By the time the Chronicler was writing this history (around 400 BC), the temple was destroyed and there was no king on the throne. Nehemiah would oversee the temple’s rebuilding, and Herod the Great would see it expanded to new heights, only to be destroyed again a few decades later by the Romans.
Solomon was the first of a long line of disappointing kings, and the temple didn’t fair any better. Neither would fulfill God’s promise to David.
For God so loved the world he sent the Son… John 3:16
Jesus, the Son of David, who would forever sit on the throne and rebuild his temple in the hearts of men and women.
