Song of Songs
J. Deering, AncientPath.net
The Song of Songs is the only survivor of 1005 songs written by Solomon (1 Kings 4:32).
The Hebrews called this The Holy of Holies, also called the Song of Solomon, which designates the author, and Canticles, simply meaning "songs," derived from the Latin.
The time: about 965 B.C.
The Plot: The book is descriptive of Solomon's love for a young lady, their brief courtship, and life together as a married couple.
The Place: Two homes or settings, Jerusalem (the palace) and the vicinity of Lebanon (Baal-hamon) which is the bride's family home.
Theme: The love of the Shepherd King for Israel (the Church, and the individual believer)
