Song of Songs – Part 2

Join us as we complete our study of the “most spiritual” of King Solomon’s 3 books, the Song of Songs. We begin with an analysis of a prophetic vision of Messiah’s return at the end of the age that includes a veiled reference to the Aaronic Blessing. Then, we consider three parallel statements made by the Bride that reveals her spiritual growth and intimacy with her beloved. We also take a close look at two frequently used word in the Song of Songs that will deepen our understanding of this wonderful book.

    Hi,
    I believe you taught that Jews never believed that sacrifices took away sins. Why did they do them? To be ceremonially clean? What about a “sin offering” or the scape goat? Thanks in advance.

    Tommie, I provide a fairly comprehensive answer in the teachings on the first five chapters of Leviticus. But, in a nutshell, most of the sacrifices were voluntary and had nothing at all to do with sin. The whole burnt offering (Lev.1) was brought voluntarily as a way to draw close to God. The meal/minchah offering (Lev.2) was voluntary and was a way to express thanks to God. The peace offering (Lev.3) was voluntary and brought as a way to express love to God. The sin and guilt offerings (Lev.4-5) were not voluntary but were commanded as a way to express repentance for an unintentional sin (Lev.4:1). There was no prescribed offering for an intentional sin. In those cases, a person’s only recourse was to cast themselves upon God’s grace and mercy as David did after his sin with Bathsheba (2Sam.11-12). The only animal that bore away sin, according to the Torah, was the ‘scapegoat’ (Lev.16:22), which is a picture of Messiah. As you read these passages, remember that the word “atonement” (כפר/kippur) means “cover”, not ‘forgive’. Again, this is a very condensed version of what I go over in the Leviticus teachings. I hope you will listen to them so as to get a more complete and, hopefully, more satisfying answer to your question. Thanks for your question! Grant
