About four years ago (September of 2012) I started a series on this blog that ran for three years. It was a verse by verse look at the Song of Songs, also known as the Song of Solomon.
Since that time, my readership has changed. I thought many of you who see my blog today might be unfamiliar with this wonderful Song.
I will be reposting, updating, polishing, and editing as I go. I hope this series blesses you and draws us all into a deeper intimacy with our Shepherd King, Jesus.
So - here we go.
Song of Songs Saturday--Here's Why
(originally posted 9/1/2012)
A few years back I spent a couple years studying the Song of Songs. Inspired by Mike Bickel’s 1998 twenty, 1-hour teachings, I took up his challenge to live in that Song for a while. He subsequently rerecorded the series in twenty-four, 45-minute sessions. There is a link below to Mike’s website where you can download the teachings and the notes that go with it. I would highly recommend throwing this on your iPod or mp3 player of choice and give it a listen. It will change the way you think about EVERYTHING!
I got my hands on a few other books and started living in the Song of Songs for both devotional and study time. I read a number of books with different approaches to the Song, and it started to flavor everything I did.
When I started in the Song, it did not seem terribly relevant. But in short order, I found that every conversation I had somehow related back to the Song. This came as a surprise to me.
You might ask, How does this relate to the Red Letters? As you will see, Jesus is the main character of the Song. At least that is the approach I will be taking. It is not by any means the only approach, but I like it best.
I hope you enjoy this journey as much as I did!
Come back next week and we'll get started.
See you then,
