Bible commentary

Wesley's Notes for Song of Solomon 1:1


1:1 The song - The most excellent of all songs. And so this might well be called, whether you consider the author of it, who was a great prince, and the wisest of all mortal men; or the subject of it, which is not Solomon, but a greater than Solomon, even Christ, and his marriage with the church; or the matter of it, which is most lofty, containing in it the noblest of all the mysteries contained either in the Old or the New Testament; most pious and pathetical, breathing forth the hottest flames of love between Christ and his people, most sweet and comfortable, and useful to all that read it with serious and Christian eyes.

    I love the book of Solomon. Out of reading through my bible 2.5 times, the Song of Solomon has always captured me in thorough explanation it gives in the telling of the (4-Loves) the human existence goes through, and then we experience the "True" AGAPE of love which is more fulfilling and always needed within our every day lives.
