    Have you ever tried to read the Song of Solomon? For many readers, it can be one of the most confusing books in the entire Bible. What is the meaning of the seemingly erotic images used in this book? How did a love poem make it into the Bible? What does it mean to say the Song of Songs is inspired Scripture?

    In this Bible Study, Dr. Brant Pitre explains the true meaning of the Song of Solomon by going back to its Hebrew roots and showing that in its original context, the Song was nothing less than a poem about the divine love story between God and his people. In this study, you will learn about:


    • How saints, doctors, and scholars interpret this mysterious book of the Bible

    • How the original Hebrew provides a key to unlocking the original meaning of the Song

    • Why ancient Jews and Christians interpreted the Song as an allegory of God’s love for Israel, his Bride

    • How the Jewish Tabernacle and the Temple provide hidden clues to decipher the message of the Song

    • Why the Song of Songs ends with the Bride still waiting for her Bridegroom to come quickly


    If you’ve ever wondered what to make of the Song of Solomon and weren’t sure how to interpret it, then this study is a perfect introduction to one of the most fascinating books in the Bible. One thing is certain: after listening to this study, you will never see the Song of Songs the same way again.

Very Illuminating

I loved this talk. It gave a great introduction into the Song of Solomon, and how it is interpreted. Dr. Pitre clarified this often misunderstood text and prompted me to want to learn more about Jesus as The Bridegroom (so I am now listening to Dr. Pitre's talk "Jesus the Bridegroom"). Well worth the buy.

The Seven Sacraments: Are They Biblical?

Wives Do What?!
Richard Wise
And the two shall become one

Here’s the deal. Husbands and wives are helpmates to heaven. This is a great presentation on how to do that. Matrimony is about a covenant based on sacrificial love. That would be a God based relationship.

Excellent Resource

Great study on the Mass as Biblical worship. If you’ve ever wondered why the Mass is structured the way it is, this is the Bible study for you. Brant Pitre is a dynamic and engaging speaker, and I highly recommend anything from him.

Very informative.

A wonderful presentation! I now have a much better understanding of this great saint. As I have been commissioned to paint an icon of St Joseph it has been timely and inspirational.

Wives Do What?!

Knowing the Context Removes the Blinders

You cannot understand what St. Paul is teaching if you don't know who he is speaking to and how these people lived in the first century. You must understand the historical background, and no one explains it better than Dr. Petre. He opens up the first century, shows us how the gentiles lived and, more importantly, how Christ wanted them to live. The sad truth is that we face a similar culture today, and it gives me hope that the Church and its teachings survived and will survive again. If I had anything to say about it, I would insist that every engaged couple view this presentation. St. Paul's teachings are as relevant today as they were twenty centuries ago. I've been married for 35 years, but I learned a little more on how to improve my relationship with my husband.

Do I recommend this product to others? Absolutely! Everyone can learn from it.
