What can we learn about Solomon from this account of the construction of the temple (6:1-38) and the palace (7:1-12)?
What does Solomon pray for in 8:22-53? How does his prayer serve as an example for us? What are some ways that we can model our own prayers after his?
What was the purpose of the temple in the nation of Israel? Why was the construction of the temple such a significant event?
How does the temple point back to the Garden of Eden (Genesis 1-2)? How does it point forward to the New Heavens and the New Earth (Revelation 21-22)?
How was the purpose of the temple fulfilled in the person and work of Jesus?
