Song of Songs 6:10
What a beautiful description of one of the daughters of Israel. The Song of Songs is often interpreted as being a love story between Solomon and a young shepherd woman. As the narrative relates, theirs is a hide-and-seek relationship, which promises fulfillment in the discovery of love.
Bible scholars see the Church of today as "grafted in"-like a wild olive tree into a broken branch, sharing the root & sustaining life (Roman 11:17). By the Spirit of Adoption, the Gentile Church shares in a love relationship with God as did the shepherdess with Solomon.
This painting was inspired by a granddaughter who recently visited Israel. As a Jewish descendant, she has hazel eyes and blond hair, thus, breaking the stereotyped concept of the dark-haired, olive skin Jew. I am reminded through this painting that in the New Jerusalem, the Church will be represented by ALL nations of the earth (Rev. 5:9). Thank you for looking!
