Solomon is one of the aging King David's sons, the one whom David has decreed will rule as king once David has died. On his deathbed, David explains to Solomon why he was chosen. He must complete an important task: the construction of the Temple of Jerusalem, which will house and protect the ancient Ark of the Covenant between God and the Israelites. He tells his son to govern the authority and never lapse into weakness. But Solomon questions his own ability - he believes he's too weak and fearful a man to carry out this task - and asks God for wisdom so that he may rule God's people. God's response is that 'I will give the wisdom of a clear and discerning mind. I will also give you what you have not asked: riches and glory, so that no other king shall compare with you.' After seven years, the Temple is ready to be consecrated. The Ark of the Covenant - the most sacred relic of the 12 tribes of Irsrael - is secured in the Temple. Includes English subtitles. Dove 'Faith-Friendly' (12+). Approx. 174 minutes.
