The Journey Within Series
By Audrey Eddings
ExcerptA commonly held interpretation of the Song of Solomon by some Jews is that the bridegroom is God and the Shulammite woman is the Jewish nation. Christians interpret the bridegroom as the Christ and the Shulammite woman as the church. While others see the Song of Solomon as the relationship between a husband and a wife.
At the time Song of Solomon was written, Solomon has only 140 wives out of the eventual 1000 that he would marry. Many of his marriages were for political alliances. His attitude towards sex was all about the beauty of women, which he extolled without measure, but it was totally without emotional bonding.
