The True and Greater Solomon

Date: May 26, 2019 ()

Bible Text: Luke 11:29, 31 |

Series:

In Hebrews 3:12 God said the generation of Israelites in the wilderness had "evil unbelieving hearts." Similarly, in Luke 11:29 when the Jews asked for a sign, Jesus said they were "an evil generation." Both generations were evil because of how much reason they had to believe. Jesus used the Queen of Sheba's example to rebuke the Jews. She went to hear Solomon's wisdom, and she came to faith in God. Even though the Jews had "a greater than Solomon" in Jesus, they were unbelieving and they rejected Jesus' wisdom.
