The Chronological Bible- Week 22

This week brings us to the end of the united Kingdom of Israel. Solomon's wisdom gives way to the in-fighting and separation of the Northern and Southern Kingdoms.

Solomon's wisdom is on full display in Ecclesiastes, Song of Songs and the end of Proverbs. His most poetic language, in the Chronological reading, leads directly into the outcome of his life- how his heart is led astray by his many foreign marriages. What do you make of this? How did such a wise man end up with such a foolish heart?

Happy Reading! Be blessed-
