Solomon was known for women, wisdom and wealth – the kind of guy every Jewish man would daydream of being like. But Jesus claimed that he was even greater than Solomon.

In claiming that he was greater than Solomon, Jesus was saying that he had the answer to what Solomon was searching for. Jesus knew what would bring true fulfillment: himself.
