Queen of Sheba


Dear Brother Ron

Was Jesus talking about the Queen of Sheba in this passage?
Matthew 12:42 "The Queen of the South will rise at the judgment with this generation and condemn it; for she came from the ends of the earth to listen to Solomon's wisdom, and now one greater than Solomon is here."

And whoever she is, does it not mean that she is saved?

Dear Tuberoo

Jesus was indeed talking about the Queen of Sheba, who traveled a great distance to hear the wisdom of Solomon and rewarded him with great riches. The meaning of this verse is the Queen of Sheba shall rise from the grave on the day of judgment and shall condemn the children of Israel.

Jesus is saying that the Queen of Sheba traveled a great distance to experience the wisdom of Solomon, yet the Hebrews reject the greater wisdom of Jesus, who is right in their midst. Therefore, the Queen of Sheba would condemn them for rejecting the opportunity to gain from this wisdom.

As far as being "saved" is concerned, since the Queen of Sheba lived long before the birth of Jesus, she would not have the opportunity to be "saved" in the contemporary Christian sense of the word. Would our Father cast somebody into eternal torment who endured great hardship and richly rewarded those who helped her gain a better understanding of God?

I seriously doubt it.

Best always
Brother Ron
