The name Solomon’s Porch came from an actual story in the bible (Acts 3:1-11) that talks about a man with disabilities and the miracle that occurred during King Solomon’s reign. Please read the scripture below:
1 Peter and John were making their way together up into the temple. It was the hour of prayer, the ninth hour. 2 There was a man who was born lame. He was being carried to the gate of the temple —the gate named “Beautiful”. Every day he was laid there so that as people entered into the temple he could beg gifts for his needs.
3 Seeing Peter and John about to go in, he asked them for a gift. 4 Peter took a good look at the man, and John did too. Peter told the man, ‘Look at us. 5 He gave them his attention, expecting to receive something from them.” (Acts 1:1-5).
6 But Peter said, ‘I don’t have any silver or gold, but I do have something to give you: in the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth, rise up and walk! 7 Peter took him by the right hand, and raised him up. Immediately his feet and ankles were given strength. 8 He leaped up, stood, and began to walk. He went with Peter and John into the temple. He was walking, leaping, and praising God.” (Acts 1:6-8).
9 All the people saw him walking and praising God. 10 They recognized him as the man who would sit begging at the Beautiful Gate of the temple. They were filled with wonder and amazement at what had happened to him. 11 The lame man who was healed held on to Peter and John while all the people came running toward them into Solomon’s porch. How greatly amazed they were.” (Acts 2:9-11).
