This commentary interprets the Song with reference to the holy estate of human marriage and the great mystery of Christ’s union with his betrothed bride, the church. Solomon’s most beautiful poem contains a profound message of divine love, eschatological yearning, consummation, and eternal delights, with rich applications for the life of the church and all Christians. A major portion of this commentary is devoted to hermeneutics and the development of a method of Old Testament interpretation that is Christological, ecclesiological, sacramental, and eschatological. This work also incorporates insights from early church fathers and the few orthodox Lutheran theologians from previous centuries who have expounded the Song so as to proclaim the Gospel of Jesus Christ.
