Proverbs Facts: The Proverbs of Solomon continue.

The words of Agur begin in chapter 30.  This is the name of the author of the wise sayings provided in Prov. 30. Either this was a real person, or as some have suggested, it was a fanciful name for Solomon. Proverbs 30 says that he was the son of Jakeh (Hebrew: “Yaqeh”) which means “to obey” or “obedient.” Again, this is either a real person, or another symbolic name for Solomon.

Lemuel means “devoted or dedicated to God”.  There is no other reference to a King named Lemuel so speculation as to his identity is up for debate with some saying it is Solomon, others Hezekiah or just a king named Lemuel that we know nothing about.

The section of Proverbs at the end of chapter 31 that describes a godly woman is written as an Acronym with each verse beginning with a letter of the Hebrew alphabet.

Ecclesiastes was written by Solomon.

What's TheTempleBlog?

The TempleBlog started as my personal blog in October of 2006 with my first post: John Stott – it was a listing of John Stott quotes.

Now it is a different place. I mostly write about two of my convictions: Pacifism and Racism. But I also offer resources: both digital and personal. 

If you need Bible Study materials, want to take a more serious look at theology via an online course, or want to dialog with me about ministry and what I call Spiritual Construction, fill out the form here and we can connect and see where the relationship goes.

Other churches have chosen  a middle ground approach: modified meetings in public. Others have chosen to simply meet.  Surrounding the challenges and variations  of Sunday
