1 Kings 4-7
Bummer my first day back and all we get to read about is about a couple of houses getting built.
My question is; Did the Israelites/God purposefully abandon the tabernacle tent set up once they reached the promised land? Is the "House of God", as a permanent structure supposed to represent an established nation of Israel?
Bonus question; What is a molten sea?
