Song of Songs has been interpreted as a description between the spiritual relationship of Christ and the church and as a description of human marriage and sexuality. This commentary expounds upon the text from the former point of view, but also looks briefly at the latter.
Although the Song of Songs was written before the incarnation, it is Jesus who explains that the Old Testament scriptures are they which testify of me (John 5:39). No Old Testament book is so full of Christ than the Song of Songs.
