Looking at the map in my bible
When Sheba traveled to see Solomon
bring all her gifts and seeing that
he was blessed by the Lord.I don't know
which way she went to see SOlomon the King. This is what I believe
from Ezion Geber,then to Kadish Barnea ,Tamar, Gath Hebron then to Jeruesdlem and Damascus. I've been reading and can't find what I'm looking for,where does it explain
Bible Answer: Greetings! I may be reading more into your question or not giving you what you are looking for but as I consider this passage, to me the important thing is that the queen heard and then sought to find out if what she had heard was true. (It was that and more!)
The path she took to reach the king did not matter, seeing the king was the most important thing of all. How might we draw a parallel to our own journey to Jesus? We can't stand on the testimony of others, we have to have first hand knowledge of the Savior!
Have you discovered that all that Jesus has told us is true? Will you respond like the queen? Will you return to your "own country" and share what you know about THE King?
I hope this gives you some additional insight into this passage. It sure has blessed me,thanks for bringing it to my attention!
