“…and behold, a greater than Solomon is here.”
This verse has always had great effect on me. It is similar to the encounter when Jesus said, “before Abraham was, I Am.” It sends chills up my spine, because He is speaking in no uncertain terms about his pre-existence with the Father, and his Divinity.
We are another generation seeking a sign, not realizing that, as with every other generation, the sign stands directly in front of us.
The sign is God-made-flesh, fixed to a cross with spikes.
We walk past without stopping, looking for an easier sign.
