October 22, 2015: Daily Bible Reading with Commentary for Ecclesiastes 1-2

Click here for the Daily Reading

 

Author: Solomon (debated)

Date: Near the end of the reign of Solomon (later if not written by Solomon)

 

Context: Be careful not to become depressed while reading this book!  Ecclesiastes is a different book from any other book in the Bible.  Solomon, with all of the wisdom given to him by the Lord, records his life away from the Lord.  A life without God, is a life without completeness and peace.  It is extremely important in this book to remember the context surrounding the writing.  After the introduction (1-2), Solomon contemplates time and the world (3-11), wisdom (12-18), wealth (2:1-11), wisdom again (12-17), and wealth again (18-26).
