Song of Solomon

The Book of the Song of Solomon in the BibleThe Song of Solomon, also called the “Song of Songs,” was written about King Solomon. It’s content is perhaps a bit too explicit for some people’s sense of appropriateness and certainly not what many would expect to find in the Bible.

On the surface, it is a frank poem exalting courtship, sexual desire, and marriage. On a deeper level it becomes a metaphor for the love and yearning that Jesus has for his followers and his desire and longing to connect with them on an intimate spiritual level.

In the gospels, Jesus sometimes metaphorically calls himself the bridegroom; his followers are implied to be his bride (John 3:29, Mark 2:19-20, and Luke 5:34-35).
