The Faces of Jesus in the Song of Songs

I recently finished a series of devotional glimpses into the heart of God through the Bridal Paradigm. In that series, I made one glaring, although intentional, omission: I skipped over the Song of Songs. I felt this book is too vast to do it justice in a one-entry, introductory way and so just ignored it. Now, I want to go back and pull a few things from this book.

This isn't a study of the book, but rather it's going to be patterned similarly to the previous series. In each article I'm going to take a small section from the book and use it as a jumping off point to reveal a specific quality of God's heart.

I believe the Songs can be interpreted several ways, all of which are valid. However, for the purposes of this series, I'm going to be looking at it as an allegory for the relationship between believers as the bride and Jesus as the groom.

Comments are welcome but I do moderate them. This is simply to keep things wholesome for general family viewing. By default, comments will be accepted. The few things that will cause a comment to be rejected are:

1. It is too long even though it may be well-written and make interesting points. It's supposed to be a comment, not an essay. If you have that much to say, write a blog article and backlink to me.

2. It is nasty, impolite or uses language that is unacceptable.

3. It includes a a link that has a typo or is broken in some other way.

4. It should have been sent as an e-mail since it is clearly addressed to me and does not appear to have been intended for other readers.

5. It is blatantly self-promotional. This does not mean it can't be self-promotional at all, but it should add some value over and above the marketing.
