Chapter Summary

It is not surprising that Josephus has given in his Antiquities of the construction and dedication of Solomon's temple much attention. His presentation is based on the whole of the Old Testament template. But a closer comparison shows that he has added to his playing a not insignificant piece, in the prayer that speaks Solomon. The retelling of Josephus Ant 8,1o6ff. is related to the account found in 1 Kings 8 par. 2 Chr 5. The focus of these statements is thanksgiving that is mentioned three times. This chapter presents widely used Greeks thoughts. Josephus has presented his views in the form of an address to God, as often happened in the practice of prayer and done. In the words of Solomon in 1 Kings 8,23f. he has read the thanks of the King of God's blessings.
