Daily Bible Reading for December 4, 2014, with Commentary: Song of Solomon 1-2

Click here for the Daily Reading.

 

Author: Solomon

Date: uncertain, during Solomon’s reign

 

Context: The book of Song of Solomon can make people uncomfortable when they read it, as it quite descriptive.  Song of Solomon expresses the love between a married couple and the joy they can find in one another.  It also shows the love God has for the church.  Today’s reading tells the beginning of a story between a shepherd girl and a king in disguise.

World History: Many scholars disagree on how to interpret this book, and its events.  Some believe the book is written in chronological order, with others disagree.  Compared to similar poetry during the same time period, this Song is rather tame in its descriptions.
