as what i have know King Solomon is the richest man in times. He build the temple with the use of gold. Do you have any idea that we can learn about this man? Today the richest man is from Mexico. Carlos Slim, a Mexican tycoon, is currently the world's richest man being worth an estimated $67.8 billion, after overtaking Bill Gates Microsoft Corporation.

I think the richest man in the Bible is actually... Adam. After all, God gave him and Eve all the World

Haha, True, but too bad they didn't appreciate it enough to keep it. They would still be alive today if they would have just obeyed.

Good information you have there my friend, I think you love to read books, news, magazines and bible. I think yes King Solomon is the richest man in his times but we really don't know if his gold value that much in his time. I believe in the bible the Powerful person is also the richest people in their time like kings.

I also believed that King Solomon is the richest man during his times. His request of wisdom rather than gold or money had shifted to his favor and advantage, where he enriches all the possession and kingdom that was left by his father David. About Carlos Slim, the supposedly richest man in the world today, do you know his business line and how did he gets all his richness?

I would say that Christ is the richest man - He possesses richness in everyway. He had everything yet had the power to give up everything ( in terms of material wealth ), mental wealth - He was never defeated in His mind & never will be. He was a man like all of us with emotions but He was emotionally rich, not to mention spiritually as well as all of us know. Richness or wealth is not limited to material things alone
