Sunday School Lesson for the week of October 23, 2011. Unit I. Teaching and Learning. Song of Solomon 4:8-16; 5:1a (Devotional Reading Genesis/Bereshith 2:18-24)
Song of Solomon/Songs is in the Hebrew canon the first of the five Megilloth or rolls and is annually read by the Jews in their synagogues at the Feast of the Passover.
Megilloth or Rolls is a term applied by the Jews to five books of the Old Testament: Song of Solomon, Ruth, Lamentations, Ecclesiastes, and Esther. These books were to be read publicly in the synagogues in certain special occasions in the year.
Feast of Passover was the covenant feast of Israel, kept on the 14th Abib or Nisan (March-April) followed by the Feast of Unleavened Bread, which lasted seven days (Leviticus 23:6).
