This course is a study of the Book of Ecclesiastes and the Song of Solomon. This lecture is of the Study of the content of these two books of the Old Testament.
1:1 The words of . . .—Such superscriptions are common in wisdom (Proverbs 1:1; 25:1; 30:1) and prophetic literature (Isaiah 1:1; Jeremiah 1:1). words—in this context proverbial wisdom words (cf. 12:9, 10), but it may also refer to the deeds and events which are described in the book (Crenshaw). Preacher—Hebrew, qoheleth, meaning “assembler,” one who gathers the congregation together (cf. 1 Kings 8). The Septuagint translated the term as ekklesiastes in Greek, from which the English title of the book is derived. The author uses it as a proper name: Qohelet (cf. 1:12). son of David—“Son of” often means “having the qualities of” (e.g., sons of Thunder, sons of the prophets) or “descendant of” [Christ as the son of David (Matthew 1:1)]. Many think this identification refers to Solomon because of his gift (1 Kings 3) and intense pursuit of wisdom (1:17), which is consistent with the ethos of the book.
