    The Temple that Solomon built was subsequently destroyed by the Babylonians, while the surviving Hebrews were carried off to Babylon, as slaves. The same area still has a substantial Jewish population. After King Cyrus of Persia conquered Babylon, he decided to send the Jews back to the Holy Land, along with all necessary supplies and the sacred, temple vessels. The bulk of that account is proven, historical fact.

     nobody knows for certain cos there is no actual physical evidence

    the only evidence come from religious texts, and VERY little of that

    (sorry "Doug"

       even is what you say is "fact" none of it directly connects somebody called solomon to it

    The bible is what is called "Faction” A fictional story set in a factual time and place. Thus the time, place and real historical characters are all correct but the fictional characters and stories are not!

    King Solomon existed, yes. A person can know numerous truths by reciting the rosary every day with care and sincerity. The Virgin Mary is far wiser than King Solomon.

    1 yes

    2 Gods word 

    3 He was the wisest king to have ever lived

    God favored him so much that he told him he could have anything he asked for. And Solomon asked for the wisdom of God, and not money or power or women. So God gave him all these things - and godly wisdom. 

    =============

    Solomon means peaceful, (Heb. Shelomoh), David's second son by Bathsheba, i.e., the first after their legal marriage ( 2 Samuel 12 ). He was probably born about B.C. 1035 ( 1 Chronicles 22:5 ; 29:1 ). He succeeded his father on the throne in early manhood, probably about sixteen or eighteen years of age. Nathan, to whom his education was intrusted, called him Jedidiah, i.e., "beloved of the Lord" ( 2 Samuel 12:24 2 Samuel 12:25 ). He was the first king of Israel "born in the purple." His father chose him as his successor, passing over the claims of his elder sons: "Assuredly Solomon my son shall reign after me." His history is recorded in 1Kings 1-11 and 2Chr. 1-9. His elevation to the throne took place before his father's death, and was hastened on mainly by Nathan and Bathsheba, in consequence of the rebellion of Adonijah ( 1 Kings 1:5-40 ). During his long reign of forty years the Hebrew monarchy gained its highest splendour. This period has well been called the "Augustan age" of the Jewish annals. The first half of his reign was, however, by far the brighter and more prosperous; the latter half was clouded by the idolatries into which he fell, mainly from his heathen intermarriages ( 1 Kings 11:1-8 ; 1 Kings 14:21 1 Kings 14:31 ).
