    1 Kings 1: Solomon the Baby Ripper

    1 Kings 1: Solomon the Baby Ripper

    What's the difference between a baby cut in a half and a Ferrari? Solomon didn't have any Ferrari's.

    This episode, we're covering 1 Kings Chapters 1-11. David's oldest son learned nothing from his dead older brothers and attempts his own coup. Solomon is ultimately crowned king and David gives him a bit of fatherly advice - mostly he just gives him a list of executions he'd like performed. We also hear the story of Solomon's sharp (and a bit sadistic) wisdom as well as his 1000 wives who will eventually be his downfall.

The podcast I have always been looking for

I have tried reading the Bible to understand what people see in this book several times. I have never made it past Job. This is an exceptional podcast to try and understand this book for someone who has never learned about it.
