Song of Solomon

Sermon on Jul 6, 2003

Song of Solomon 1:1-2:3

Turn with me to the opening chapter of the Song of Solomon. We’ll be reading through into the third verse of chapter 2. I don't normally do this, but I'm going to interject some comments as we read the passage together. That is, in part, because at different points in the chapter, and this is true throughout the Song of Solomon, different people are speaking; sometimes it's the...

Chapter 2

Song of Solomon

Sermon on Sep 10, 2003

Song of Solomon 2:3

Turn with me to the Song of Solomon, or the Song of Songs, as it is sometimes called. We are going to pick up the reading in the second chapter beginning at verse 3, and we’ll be reading through into the third chapter. The Song of Solomon comes just before the Book of Isaiah and just after Ecclesiastes, and I can believe that there are many of you...

Song of Solomon

Sermon on Jul 27, 2003

Song of Solomon 2:3-3:5

Turn with me once again to the Song of Solomon. We are in the second chapter, and we're going to pick up the reading at the third verse of chapter 2. Let me remind you this book is a collection of songs or poems that's compiled in order to express the love of a man and a young woman. This young man and woman seemed to have lived...

Chapter 3

Song of Solomon

Sermon on Aug 3, 2003

Song of Solomon 3:6-5:1

Turn with me to the Song of Solomon to chapter 3 and we will pick it up at verse 6 and read through into the first verse of chapter 5. The section begins with a question that draws us out into the wilderness somewhere, and in the distance, there is what we might call a palanquin, a grand chair being carried by a group of beefy men...

Chapter 5

Song of Solomon

Sermon on Aug 10, 2003

Song of Solomon 5:2-6:3

Turn with me to the Song of Solomon. We’re in chapter 5 and we’ll just go into the first three verses of chapter 6. Last week we held our breath and closed our eyes as we went through chapter 4; it was the couple's wedding night and the delicacy of the description was breath taking.

Now, another scene opens up before us, and one in which...

Chapter 6

Song of Solomon

Sermon on Aug 17, 2003

Song of Solomon 6:4-8:4

These summer evenings we've been in the Song of Solomon and tonight we're reading from chapter 6 into chapter eight. Last week, at the beginning of chapter six, we left them in beds of spices and gathering lilies, and we delicately passed over what that actually meant, keeping to the metaphor instead. Now, we begin with the man, who loves poetry, but he's not such a great poet...

Song of Solomon

Sermon on Aug 24, 2003

Song of Solomon 8:5-7

Hear the word of God in the Song of Solomon, chapter 8, beginning at verse 5:

“Who is this coming up from the wilderness leaning on her beloved?" Beneath the apple tree I awakened you; there your mother was in labor with you, there she was in labor and gave you birth. Put me like a seal over your heart, like a seal on...

Song of Solomon

Sermon on Aug 21, 2003

Song of Solomon 8:8-14

We've come to the final section of chapter 8:8-14. In verse 7, we've just read, “Many waters cannot quench love nor will rivers overflow it. If a man were to give all of the riches of his house for love, it would be utterly despised.” “Money can't buy you love,” sang the Beatles. Well let's hear now the Word of God as we find it in chapter 8...
