Song of Songs
Finding it peculiar that once of the most intimate pieces of the Hebrew Holy Writ is being used for an analogy regarding the rampant abuses being perpetrated upon the Jewish people, one wonders about the motivations in bringing up Scripture that points to the marriage supper of the Lamb.
While it is true that certain ascriptions of the Christian community does/do refer to the Song of Songs by Solomon as an analogy to the position of Yeshua as the groom and the Church He started as His Bride, the deeper and more prioritized connection is that for which it appears in deeper study to be between the LORD (HaShem) and His intended, Zion, as referred to in the Psalms 48; this is the primary eternal relationship; the Church is an amplification, but not a substitution of that.
The Church does NOT replace Israel; that cannot be found in Scripture. That is why when the Church is removed, Israel remains through Zion (Jerusalem) to be brought before the LORD in beauty and holiness, prophetic fulfillment of the Song of Songs.
