Editor's note: This is a very hefty resource. It covers one of the most complicated books of the Bible, and includes a lot of great ideas that connect well with where students are at.

Song of Songs is a three-week series taking a close look at the Bible's most explicit book. It's not just erotic poetry, though; it communicates powerful messages about God's view of love, sex, and wisdom. Over the centuries, Song of Songs has been a controversial yet important book with important lessons for young people.

Week 1 - "Solomon"
Series kickoff on the Song of Songs with a closer look at the life of Solomon and how God uses Song of Songs to powerfully communicate what God intends love and sexuality to be; a beautiful thing that couples enjoy, builds marriages, and builds families.

Week 2 - "Love"
The series continues with a closer look at chapter 1 and exploring the use of the word "love" throughout the book, emphasizing the three Hebrew words that are translated as "love" and what that tells us about God's heart for the marriage relationship.

Week 3 - "Wisdom"
The series concludes with a look at a reoccurring phrase throughout the book of Song of Songs; a challenge to "not awaken love until the time is right." Through a closer look at chapter 2, as well as passages from Proverbs and Ecclesiastes, students will be challenged to have wisdom when it comes to love, friendship, and sex in a culture that points them in a different direction.

While the series includes comments based on current scholarly research portraying Song of Songs as a collection of poetry collected by Solomon (some written by him, others collected by him), for teachers who hold to a traditional view that Song of Songs is one poem written entirely by Solomon, it is possible to teach the series from that perspective without changing the lessons or main teaching points.

This Resource Includes:
• 3 message manuscripts
• 3 PowerPoint presentations
• 3 fill-in-the-blank handouts
• Title and Blank graphics (jpg)

Note from the Author

Looking at some of the funnier and more explicit parts of Song of Songs was actually a fun experience, as it broke the ice and allowed for some great conversations around love and intimacy, as well as the history and life of Solomon.

There are plenty of people who are grateful that you do what you do. Your students are, their families are, and your church is, even though they may not say it often enough. I want to say thanks on behalf of them, and model the way we need to be saying thanks to the leaders that serve alongside us—in ten different ways—through this ebook.

Thank YOU!
