What is the significance of the three books of King Solomon (Proverbs, Ecclesiastes, Songs )?
Requested and Answered by Shenouda on 20-Jul-2005 05:55 (1712 reads)
The three books of King Solomon correspond to the three steps in ones spiritual life: Proverbs is the book of ‘wisdom’. Ecclesiastes is the book of ‘vanity’, and Songs is the book of ‘love’.

By wisdom we mean the spiritual wisdom from God, and not the earthly philosophical wisdom.

After gaining spiritual wisdom and being enlightened by God’s divine light, you will come to the realisation that this world is ‘vanity’, because all will vanish. And once you will come to the realization about the world, you will look toward the Kingdom of Heaven and the King of Heaven, our Beloved Lord Jesus Christ. You will devote yourself and your time to Him, and thereby you will be united to Him through Love.
