The Song of Solomon is a book of the Christian Old Testament and among the poetry books in both the Jewish Scriptures and the Christian Scriptures. Still, apart from the "Rose of Sharon" passage or the "love is as strong as death" passage this book of the Bible is mostly avoided or unattended. What is more, the Song is often understood in some grand metaphorical sense making its contents an expression of God's love for His people and vice versa.
While there is much to learn from this "grand metaphorical sense" I believe the Song serves an equally powerful role when read as a literary account of the actual King Solomon as he, through his uniquely imparted wisdom, offers a kind of heavenly accounting of marriage and specifically that of physical union between a husband and wife. With that belief as a motivation we took to YouTube and started making our way through the whole book verse by verse. This video is the beginning of that journey.
