Summary

This book, also called the Song of Solomon, is one of the most neglected - and controversial - books of the Bible. It is a book about lovemaking from an author who had 700 wives and 300 concubines. So explicit are these aspects that because of its erotic content, the rabbis forbade the book to be read by anyone under the age of 30.

Almost every verse has been the subject of debate by its interpreters. Probably no other book of the Bible has such a variegated tapestry of interpretation. Yet all Scripture speaks of the glory and beauty of our messiah. John the Baptist recognized Christ as the bridegroom, as Christ himself also claimed. And Paul pressed the idiom even further, as does John in the book of Revelation. Of the more than 1,000 songs of Solomon, only this was designed by God to be included in the biblical canon.
