117 Verses of Erotic ‘Song”

One hundred and seventeen verses of progressive, monogamous, creative and erotic marital intimacy.  Eight chapters of 1 love between 2 souls with deep poetic expression.  Song of Songs…Song of Solomon.

As Christians, we are afflicted by the historical aversion to the goodness of sex promoted by early church fathers, philosophers, and more recent Victorian and Puritanical views of sex as vice rather than virtue.  Eden’s forbidden fruit has come to be symbolized by sexual intercourse.  Not so.

God, in His infinite wisdom and boundless grace, gives us this high form of physical expression for the unique love that is shared between a man and a woman.  He creates the institution of marriage to assign accountability, purpose and promise to the intense closeness engendered by the sensual experience of lovemaking that spouses share.

Such erotic and powerful words:

1:3 His oils are the lotion he wears

4:5,6 Her breasts are soft and beautiful

4:8 He asks her full attention on their wedding night

4:10 Her oils are her perfume

7:11-13 She takes sexual initiative

8:13,14 The husband and wife share an intimate desire for one another

Rich with figurative meaning concerning God and His people, Christ and His body…Song challenges the Believer to orient his/her perspective of sexual union so as to appreciate the true blessing it is meant to be.

Song 4:16 Awake, O north wind; and come, thou south; blow upon my garden, that the spices thereof may flow out. Let my beloved come into his garden, and eat his pleasant fruits.
