James Hamilton, in this latest addition to the popular Focus on the Bible series, pours fresh light on this inspiring and uplifting book. The author contends that Solomon intended his audience to detect a correspondence between the King’s marriage to his Bride and Yahweh’s covenant with Israel.
Poetry is the language of love. The Songs of Solomon are no different as we read these beautiful cameos of the intimate relationship between the King and his lover. These were the song of songs which were often sung to God in temple worship with a realisation that these songs spoke of God's love towards his chosen people. For Christians through the ages these songs point to Christ and his love towards his own ransomed and redeemed people. Indeed in New Testament Scripture the analogy is often used of Christ and His church as the Bridegroom and His bride. It speaks of restoration and reconciliation. Through the contributions of the daughter of Jerusalem, we begin to get a sense of the joy of fellowship. In this devotional work we too will learn what it is like to have daily contact with Jesus, the lover of our souls as pictured in Songs of Solomon.
