Old Testament Week 16: Wisdom & poetry literature Job, Psalms .

Old Testament Week 16: Wisdom & poetry literature Job, Psalms, Proverbs, Ecclesiastes, Song of Solomon. a) Up until now, weve mostly focused on the historical aspects of the Old Testament. 1) The Psalms are ancient hymns that contain wisdom or express thanksgiving, praise, supplication, or lament. 2 The Song of Solomon is an erotic poem about the love of a man (traditionally identified as Solomon himself) with an unnamed female lover. The book was included in the Biblical canon because its romantic themes were traditionally interpreted as an allegory of Gods love for Israel and/or for the Christian Church. The book itself makes no mention of God.

This volume of Immersion Bible Studies focuses on touchstone Scriptures that reveal the essence of wisdom as found in Proverbs, Ecclesiastes, and Song of Solomon.

Those books can be classified under wisdom poetry. It gives a panoramic view into the every-day lives of ancient Israel. Ecclesiastes is a tricky book to talk about as the theme of the book is ‘everything is meaningless under the sun’. It acknowledges the ideals behind proverbs but maintains a critical standpoint by saying not everything turns out the way we want it to be. Furthermore, it speaks about the existential crisis of chasing goals under the sun as everything is meaningless upon death.

Among the Wisdom Literature of the Old Testament, Proverbs, Ecclesiastes and the Song of Solomon were all thought by the early church fathers to have derived from the hand of Solomon. To their minds the finest wisdom about the deeper issues of life prior to the time of God's taking human form in Jesus Christ was to be found in these books. As in all the Old Testament they were quick to find types and intimations of Christ and his church which would make the ancient Word relevant to the Christians of their day. Of extant commentaries on Ecclesiastes none is so profound as the eight homilies of Gregory of Nyssa, even though they cover only the first three chapters of the book. Joining Gregory among those most frequently excerpted in this volume are Augustine, Ambrose, Gregory the Great, Origen, John Cassian, John Chrysostom, Athanasius, Bede the Venerable and Jerome. Gregory of Nazianzus, Basil the Great and Cyril of Jerusalem lead a cast of other less frequently cited fathers, and then there remains a large cast of supporting players, some of whose work is translated here into English for the first time. This volume edited by J. Robert Wright thus offers a rich trove of wisdom on Wisdom for the enrichment of the church today.
