Did the Knights of the Temple of Solomon adopt their name because they admired this old world, Old Testament, figure more than Jesus Christ?

It helps us to know that the term Solomon refers to the sun in the languages of Indo-Europeans, Semites, and Egyptians - Sol, Om and On. It is,therefore, not a name but a title. Like the titles David, Aaron, Jesus, Joshua, Joseph, John, and even Abraham and Mary, it does not refer to a person as much as to his dynasty, theology, and lineage.

Amenhotep III was the father of Akhenaton. A good candidate for the biblical Solomon. His title was "Shining Solar Disk of All the Land"

When examining the role of the Templars we need to first pay attention to their title. The masonic term "Solomon" does not refer to a place or a physical structure. It relates to the sun and to the cult of the sun. It relates to Aton and the light of Aton. As we have shown, modern researchers have offered evidence to show the Egyptian Pharaoh Amenhotep III, was one of the most likely candidates for the biblical King Solomon. And he was the father of Akhenaton. Although he openly venerated the state god Amen Ra, Amenhotep III actively promoted the worship of Aton. His own title was "The Dazzling Sun Disk of All the Land." So when we seek to determine the true time of origin of the so-called Templars we need to consider ancient Egypt and not eleventh century Burgundy. What arose in France of that period was merely an offshoot of a much more ancient order. Once this fact is understood, a study of the Templars and their affiliated organizations (Cistercians, Knights of St. John, Knights of Malta, Knights of Rhodes, and Order of Sion, etc), will make a great deal more sense.

Jerusalem has failed to produce any trace of David and Solomon, any tablet or inscription or even foundation memorial. It might be added that the city entirely fails to conform topographically with its full description given by Josephus and Nehemiah

Comyns Beaumont / <cite>Britain: Key to World History (quoted by Michael Tsarion)</cite>

The term Juda means the "shining" or "illustrious ones." It refers to the members of the Gaonim, or the Cult of Aton, and not to some black-robe-wearing priestarchy. It refers to the eighteenth dynasty Sun Cult pharaohs of Egypt whose descendants hide under the names "Israelite" and"Judite." So when we hear that “David” and “Solomon” (whom we now know as Tuthmosis III and Amenhotep III) were of the "House of Judah" we understand that it was a reference not to the Semites, or the Levites and their ethnicity and theology, but to Egypt's Solar Cult and their theology.

For all their reported wealth and power, neither David nor Solomon is mentioned in a single known Egyptian or Mesopotamian text. And the archaeological evidence in Jerusalem for the famous building projects of Solomon is nonexistent

Israel Finkelstein and Neil Asher Silberman / <cite>The Bible Unearthed (quoted by Michael Tsarion)</cite>

The task of identifying the historical Solomon is complicated not only by the biblical red-herring we have already looked at, but also by the fact that we have no historical record of a king of that name. It is only when we match in detail the Old Testament account of his exploits with the reign of Amenhotep III that it becomes clear we are dealing with the same person

Ahmed Osman / <cite>quoted by Michael Tsarion</cite>

He [Amenhotep III] was the prototype for King Solomon

Michael Tsarion / <cite>The Irish Origins of Civilization, Volume 2</cite>

Today, 3,300 years later, he [Amenhotep III] still enjoys the reputation of one infinitely wise…Amenhotep III was Solomon

Ahmed Osman / <cite>Christianity: An Egyptian Religion (quoted by Michael Tsarion)</cite>

"Solomon" who established the "Zadokite" order was none other than the eighteenth dynasty Pharaoh Amenhotep III, the father of Akhenaton. Amenhotep III was a descendant of the Hyksos pharaohs of Upper Egypt and was a worshipper of the sun god Aton. The name Solomon was merely his solar title - sol meaning sun. The Zadokites, originally sun priests of Egypt, were serpent worshippers.

Despite the hard work of biblical scholars, historians and archaeologists, no single piece of evidence has been found to support the period of the supposed United Monarchy of David and Solomon. Scholars have been confused by the biblical chronology, which present David and Solomon as having belonged to the period following both the Exodus and the settlement in the“Promised Land”…Many of these biblical events occurred four to five centuries earlier than what the Old Testament would have us believe. Both Tuthmoses III, the historical King David, and his great -grandson Amenhotep III, the Biblical Solomon, belonged to the Egyptian’s Eighteenth Dynasty.

Ahmed Osman / <cite>Moses and Akhenaton (quoted by Michael Tsarion)</cite>

Nevertheless, when researcher Ahmed Osman declares he has proven the Old Testament character known as "King David" to be none other than the eighteenth dynasty Pharaoh Tuthmosis III; and a succeeding pharaoh, Amenhotep III, to be the “Jewish” King Solomon, one would think the revelations should not only raise the proverbial eye-brow but should cause worldwide discussion. When author Laurence Gardner states that the prophet Enoch was a character based on the Sumerian Enki; and when Tony Bushby declares Roman Emperor Tiberius to be the true father of Jesus, we should take notice. And when revisionist author Moustafa Gadalla labors to prove that Jesus Christ was a character based on Pharaoh Tutankhamen, the world should surely grind to a halt to listen.

According to the Talmudic legends, Solomon understood the mysteries of the Qabbalah. He was also an alchemist and a necromancer, being able to control the dæmons, and from them and other inhabitants of the invisible worlds he secured much of his wisdom.

Solomon, the Spirit of Universal Illumination--mental, spiritual, moral, and physical--is personified in the king of an earthly nation. While a great ruler by that name may have built a temple, he who considers the story solely from its historical angle will never clear away the rubbish that covers the secret vaults. The rubbish is interpolated matter in the form of superficial symbols, allegories, and degrees which have no legitimate part in the original Freemasonic Mysteries.

The name Solomon may be divided into three syllables, SOL-OM-ON, symbolizing light, glory, and truth collectively and respectively. The Temple of Solomon is, therefore, first of all "the House of Everlasting Light," its earthly symbol being the temple of stone on the brow of Mount Moriah. According to the Mystery teachings, there are three Temples of Solomon--as there are three Grand Masters, three Witnesses, and three Tabernacles of the Transfiguration. The first temple is the Grand House of the Universe, in the midst of which sits the sun (SOL) upon his golden throne. The twelve signs of the zodiac as Fellow-Craftsmen gather around their shining lord. Three lights--the stellar, the solar, and the lunar--illuminate this Cosmic Temple. Accompanied by his retinue of planets, moons, and asteroids, this Divine King (SOLomon), whose glory no earthly monarch shall ever equal, passes in stately pomp down the avenues of space. Whereas CHiram represents the active physical light of the sun, SOLomon signifies its invisible but all-powerful, spiritual and intellectual effulgency.

The fact that the Scriptures reveal a hidden knowledge, if considered allegorically, is clearly demonstrated by a parable describing King Solomon, his wives, concubines, and virgins, which parable occurs in Geheime Figuren der Rosenkreuzer, published in Ultona in 1785. Dr. Hartmann, who translated part of this work into English, declared that the wives of Solomon represented the arts, the concubines the sciences, and the virgins the still unrevealed secrets of Nature. By order of the King the virgins were forced to remove their veils, thus signifying that by means of wisdom (Solomon) the mystic arts were forced to disclose their hidden parts to the philosopher, while to the uninitiated world only the outside garments were visible. (Such is the mystery of the veil of Isis.)

After Solomon the Kingdom of Israel began to fall apart again.

An institution grew up called the prophets. Their role was to advise the kings - except that, unlike the relationship between Melchizedek and Abraham or Merlin and Arthur, theirs was adversarial, even subversive.

Mark Booth / <cite>The Secret History of the World</cite>

The mission of Solomon was to lead humankind down into a darkening, more material world, keeping the flame of spirituality alive. It was the same mission that Freemasonry would take up in the seventeenth century at the dawn of the modern age of materialism.

Hiram of Tyre was a worshipper of Baal (History of Masonry) and knew not Jehovah. Hiram belonged tot he Napthalia or the priests of the apron or linen. Hiram's craftsmen built the temple for Solomon who had no craftsmen. Solomon was practically converted to Baal for he admired the higher cult and Jessica introduced the worship of Ball to Jerusalem. This Jehovah would not stand for he above all was a "jealous" god. Hence the line of Solomon was to be destroyed. As a matter of fact Jehovah's jealousy was the destruction and the dispersion of the Jews, as Jehovah undertook to wreak vengeance by bringing in the armies of nearby nations.

There seemed to be an understanding that the Mediterranean was the sea for one race of Els and the Red Sea for the other. When Solomon was at the heighth of his power he decided to build large ships which he launched at the port of Elath. Hiram of Tyre had a fleet with that of Solomon and they sailed together on long voyages of three years each bringing back rich cargoes and hundreds of talents of gold. So, near as Jerusalem was to the Mediterranean, it yet was at the time of Solomon the capital of the Red Sea. It may be seen that Solomon's achievements fitted into an already established extant sea economy. It was not voyages of discovery, it was rather voyages of commerce. But later, after Jehovah had divested Solomon of his power the great King Jehosphaphat arose and tried to imitate Solomon. He built ships at Elath for trade, but God destroyed those ships.

Helios is the Greek word L-O-S but the word Soloman S-O-L is the word for sun. And Sol is now our nickname for the sun.

Henry Binkley Stein / <cite>Thirty Thousand Gods Before Jehovah</cite>

One of the four deities was the Sun, or Solar. That is where we get Solomon, King Solomon from. Sol being the Latin for the Sun, Om being Hindu for the Sun, and On was the city of the Sun in Egypt. Sol Om On. Just three different names for the same deity.

Jordan Maxwell / <cite>Matrix of Power</cite>

One expression of the solar energy is Solomon, whose name SOL-OM-ON is the name for the Supreme Light in three different languages.

Manly P Hall / <cite>The Secret Teachings of all Ages</cite>

Modern science has proved that forms ranging in magnitude from solar systems to atoms are composed of positive, radiant nuclei surrounded by negative bodies that exist upon the emanations of the central life. From this allegory we have the story of Solomon and his wives, for Solomon is the sun and his wives and concubines are the planets, moons, asteroids, and other receptive bodies within his house--the solar mansion. Isis, represented in the Song of Solomon by the dark maid of Jerusalem, is symbolic of receptive Nature--the watery, maternal principle which creates all things out of herself after impregnation has been achieved by the virility of the sun.
