Product Description

Made-for-television biopic of one of the most important Biblical prophets and kings, whose name became a byword for wisdom but who was brought low by his fateful meeting with the Queen of Sheba. Solomon (Ben Cross) rises to become the benevolent King of Israel, presiding over the construction of the famous Temple and the Ark of the Covenant, loved by his people, and respected as a just ruler until he falls in love with the Queen of Sheba (Vivaca A. Fox). With her departure Solomon falls into a ruinous depression, a malaise that begins to affect the stability and peace of his own kingdom to its eventual ruin.

4.0 out of 5 stars An artistic portrayal 21 Mar 2013
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Having studied the Biblical account of King Solomon thoroughly, I found some inaccuracies in this film, but it can serve as a help to the imagination and some understanding of the culture. The story with the Queen of Sheba has been glamorised and more read into it than is actually there, but on the other hand the gradual hardening of Solomon's heart towards the LORD is shown very helpfully.

4.0 out of 5 stars A good addition to the Bible series of videos. 10 Feb 2014
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I liked this video and I gave it a four-star rating because it was faithful to the original text without seeming contrived or boring. The performances and sets were excellent and the whole story was good viewing. The menu layout is also good. I would recommend this video to anyone interested in the story of King Solomon and to anyone who has been following this series of productions. I thoroughly enjoyed it.
