Quick – who was the wisest man in the Bible?

That’s right – Jedidiah.

What – were you really thinking of that other guy, Solomon?  Well, just check this out.

Makes me wonder what he went by in life.  Solomon comes from shalom, peace.  But if God says that your name is “Loved by the Lord” – well, Mom and Dad, I’d go around carving a J into trees instead of an S.

This is neat stuff – and it’s always good to know more.  But it’s also a good time to differentiate between knowing God, and knowing about God.  The second is important.  The first is critical.
