    Song of Solomon - The Play
    Gary Mitchem
    The Song of Solomon is one of the most misunderstood books in the Bible. It was written as a play, but without the assistance of narration or character identification. This books attempts to add the missing ingredients to help clarify its rich meaning.

    book excerpt

    In the later years of his life, Solomon wrote his "song of songs". It has been taught as a love song that depicts marital love and sexual fulfillment, with fidelity as an underlying theme. However, Solomon was not married to the Shulamite, and all indications are that she was in love with another character in the play: the Shepherd. Therefore, its meaning and significance must be revisited.

    This author is convinced that Song of Solomon is, in fact, a portrayal of the futility that Solomon expressed in Ecclesiastes. In the Proverbs, written in Solomon's earlier royal career, he magnifies and personifies Wisdom. Later in life, after years of the vain persuit of pleasure and idolotry, he summed up his life by confessin "all is vanity".

    The Song of Solomon, if properly understood, is meant to be a play that reveals a wasted life full of vain pursuits. Solomon wanted Wisdom above all else, however She, like the Tree of Life in Eden, could not be obtained by unregenerate man. Her Shepherd in the story is a picture of Christ and the Church, which Paul stated are the only ones capable of obtaining the Spirit of Wisdom.

    Notes have been inserted to help identify types and shadows of the play that will hopefully assist the reader to understand the clear New Testament relevance of the scenes.
