King Solomon

Leave a comment

Solomon was David and Bathsheba’s son. Their first son died due to David’s sin. However, when Solomon was born, God told David and Bathsheba that He loved him. In fact God named him Jedidiah, loved by God. King David promised Bathsheba that when the time came, Solomon would be the next king. King Solomon was given great wisdom and God was more than happy to grant his request and give him much more besides. Our God is a gracious, generous, rich Provider.

Come journey with us as we learn about King Solomon and gain wisdom from him. These presentations are made so that you, the teacher, have the Bible text, pictures, and activities which you can display on your computer and classroom TV/screen or on Zoom or other online presentation. I hope you enjoy them.

King Solomon Asks for Wisdom — 1 Kings 1-3

This presentation starts out with a baton relay which leads into the story of King David passing the leadership to Solomon and has him crowned king. King Solomon starts his reign by worshiping and praising God. God asks Solomon to ask for anything he wants and He will give it to him. Solomon asks for wisdom! Another activity is to search for Proverb coins as Proverbs 2:4-6 and 16:16 suggest.

When the temple was all done, God answered the prayers and praise. He filled the temple with His glorious presence like a cloud and sent fire to consume the sacrifice. God desires to be with us too and to consume all our sin and woes. Remember, “Where two or three are gathered in My Name, there I will be with them.” Matthew 18:20 For the craft, we made a mobile reminding us to worship and praise God.

The queen of Sheba visits King Solomon — 1 Kings 9-11, Proverbs, Ecclesiastes

In this interactive PowerPoint presentation is packed full of fun. We learn about some of the amazing things King Solomon made and said. We, too, build those items out of dough. One of the things Solomon talked about was working hard. He said to look at the ants, so we do. We also learn of the queen of Sheba’s visit. She brought spices and jewels, so we look at and smell spices and show special stones and jewels. Finally, there is a game at the end.
