Song of Solomon Sermon Series

God uses Song of Solomon, an eight-chapter book of poetry tucked in the middle of the Bible, as a guideline to handle the most important relationship we will ever have: of a husband and a wife.

Song of Solomon is wisdom literature found in poetry form. Whether a single love poem or a collection of poems, God captures the uniqueness and distinctiveness of this exclusive relationship between husband and wife.

This book will resurrect in us a godly view of marital love, romance, intimacy and sexuality. God reveals what a relationship ought to be like through a couple living in a way which honors and brings glory to Him – from the beginning of attraction – through engagement, proposal, wedding, and honeymoon night – to deepening.

Song of Solomon is an incredible gem, often overlooked, misunderstood and misrepresented.

On this page, you will find seven sermon videos in the Song of Solomon series, as well as an Introduction Video to this book, in which Brad helps define this lyrical idol, its illusory language, and how in the world Solomon could have written something so beautiful.

You can also find additional resources and sermons on the 2017 Song of Solomon sermon series page.
