Your Beloved 

There are love expressions in this book as clear and beautiful as are its origins obscure. We find examples of similar poetry in cultures surrounding the ancient Hebrews. How did this book, which never mentions God, find its way into the Bible? This answer is simple, enunciated centuries later by St. John in his first letter: “God is love” (4:7–8). All of God’s people, Jewish and Christian, have found this book filled with the intimacy with which God wishes to relate to us.

Jewish people read the Song of Songs in synagogues on the Sabbath during the intermediate days of Passover. It is spring. The earth turns to love. This book will refresh you; it is unique from others in the Bible. There are fifty words in it not found anywhere else in Scripture!

May you be as passionate in your love for Jesus as Jesus’s love is for you.
