Just finished studying the book of The Song of Solomon. Apparently, the Song of Solomon can be looked at in a number of ways: 1. The book is simply a compilation of a number of songs involving two principle characters, i.e. two lovers. 2. The book describes a story of three principle characters: The Shephard - representing Christ. The Shulammite woman - representing the individual Christian. King Solomon - representing the world. The story envolves the Shulammite women becoming a part of Solomon's harem; rejecting Solomon as a lover; and returning to her true love, the shephard. Some believe this was an attempt by Solomon later in life to get Israel to reject Solomon's worldliness and return to God. Any comments on this?
