Where does the idea that Solomon married the queen of Sheba come from?
Around 950 BC
Israel's Kingdom United
The Bible, Book of Kings (Here's my favorite version from Amazon)
The Narrated Bible in Chronological Order (NIV)
David and other Bible Characters
Max von Sydow, Vivica A. Fox, Ben Cross, Umberto Orsini, Maria Grazia Cucinotta, Anouk Aimee
Almost every film out there, at the very least, implies the notion. There are even many movies made about their supposed love affair.
And this movie is no exception.
So, after some research I found that ethiopian and islamic traditions speak of the alleged intimate reception.
But here is what the Bible says,
King-Solomon gave the queen of Sheba all she desired and asked for, besides what he had given her out of his royal bounty.
Then she left and returned with her retinue to her own country.
~1 Kings 10:13
(New International Version, ©2010)
Neither the Bible nor does any Hebrew scripture speak of any relationship beyond that described by 1 Kings 10:13 .
The Bible does talk about his indulgence and marriages to hundreds of women who led him astray with pagan worship and sacrifices of other gods.
This ultimately tore the kingdom away from him.
This is a good movie if you can get past the obvious and purposeful distortion of Christian and Hebrew text by ethiopian and islamic radicals.
