1 Corinthians 14. The Apostle Paul reminded the Corinthians to follow love and desire the gift of prophecy. Speaking in tongues on the other hand has to be interpreted and is a sign to unbelievers. Keep order in the Church!

Song of Solomon 6. The bridegroom and friends praise the Shulamite’s beauty.

Song of Solomon 7 is full of expressions of praise.

Song of Solomon 8. And so is love renewed in Lebanon. This shows that God’s love is complete, and does indeed include the sensual. This too is the gift of God.

1 Corinthians 13, the Greatest Gift, the most quoted passages in the Bible after John 3:16, and for good reasons: “And now abideth faith, hope, charity, these three; but the greatest of these is charity.” My Christianity teacher in public school in Sweden a long time ago also quoted nearly every class: “ When I was a child, I spake as a child, I understood as a child, I thought as a child: but when I became a man, I put away childish things.For now we see through a glass, darkly; but then face to face: now I know in part; but then shall I know even as also I am known.” He did it in Swedish of course. When I became a believer at the age of 31 I finally understood what he was trying to convey.

1 Corinthians 12. The Apostle Paul instructed the Corinthians there are different spiritual gifts, but the same God works in all of them. There is unity in diversity, and yet all Christians are one body in Christ, one body with many parts and all are important for “by one spirit are we all baptized into one body” so now Paul says “ye are the body of Christ.” As to gifts there is a more excellent way, which will be revealed in the next chapter.

Song of Solomon 1. The Song of Songs stands unique in the Bible. It has no obvious religious content, just beautiful poetry. But it fits with the theme of love permeating the Bible. It starts with the Banquet.

Song of Solomon 2, the Banquet, the Beloved’s Request.

Ephesians 5, Paul gave good advice: Walk in love, walk in light, and walk in wisdom, “Redeeming the time, because the days are evil.”And be not drunk with wine, wherein is excess; but be filled with the Spirit;  Speaking to yourselves in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing and making melody in your heart to the Lord; Giving thanks always for all things unto God and the Father in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ; Submitting yourselves one to another in the fear of God.” Then Paul gave Godly advice on marriage  and likened it to the relationship between Christ and the church.
