Secular Bible Study: The Song of Solomon

Since tomorrow is Valentine’s Day, today’s Secular Bible Study is about the Song of Solomon.

And you thought there wasn’t any erotica in the Bible.

Anyway, my notes are here (and also Org-Mode format).

One Response to Secular Bible Study: The Song of Solomon

  1. I read this blog and thought this website could be an interesting addition to the theme song of solomon.
    http://www.muziekbijbel.nl has been developed to prove the importance of bible stories in the lives of a lot of secular popartists (believers or non-believers).
    The site consists of a large collection of bible related songs sung by influential secular popartists (Bob Dylan, U2, Lenny kravitz, Queen, Robbie Williams,Seal etc. etc.)
    I myself use it with succes at high school in Holland.
    Right at this moment an interesting number for discussion is Lady gaga “Judas”. In the song she sings “Jesus is my virtue and Judas the demon I cling too”.
    The song is about deceit and forgiveness where Lady gaga has the rol of maria Magdelana in the midst of Jesus and his disciples.
    The co-director explains at mtv that she herself is a christian who believes that Jesus died for her sins and that she would never defame her Saviour.
