1 Kings 4:1-6; Acts 20:1-16

Thought from Today’s Old Testament Passage:

[1 Kings 5] It was in David’s heart to build the temple. The pattern for the building was given to David, not Solomon. First Chronicles 28:19 tells us, “All this, said David, the Lord made me understand in writing by his hand upon me, even all the works of this pattern.” In other words, David was given the blueprint of the temple even though God did not permit him to build it. David gave this pattern or blueprint to Solomon. “Take heed now; for the Lord hath chosen thee to build an house for the sanctuary: be strong, and do it. Then David gave to Solomon his son the pattern of the porch, and of the houses thereof, and of the treasuries thereof, and of the upper chambers thereof, and of the inner parlours thereof, and of the place of the mercy seat, and the pattern of all that he had by the spirit, of the courts of the house of the Lord, and of all the chambers round about, of the treasuries of the house of God, and of the treasuries of the dedicated things” (1 Chron. 28:10–12). David also gathered the material: “Now I have prepared with all my might for the house of my God the gold for things to be made of gold, and the silver for things of silver, and the brass for things of brass, the iron for things of iron, and wood for things of wood; onyx stones, and stones to be set, glistering stones, and of divers colours, and all manner of precious stones, and marble stones in abundance” (1 Chron. 29:2). The conception of the temple, you see, was in the heart of David. Solomon merely executed the construction of it.

The Case for the Life, Death, and Resurrection of Jesus

How do we know the records about Jesus are accurate? Who did Jesus claim to be? Did Jesus rise from the dead? We discuss these and other important questions concerning the case for the life, death, and resurrection of Jesus in three informative programs with philosopher Dr. William Lane Craig. You’ll discover how scholarly opinion now strongly supports many lines of evidence regarding the claims of Jesus and four historical facts that provide a compelling case for the resurrection.
