Today, we went through how the Bible is organized and what the contents consist of -- the better to start them on a program of regular Bible reading.
Anyway, as I was explaining what-all the Writings were about, a mentioned that the Song of Songs was an epithalamium. Blank stares. An erotic love poem written for a royal wedding. Instant attention!
Except that I then had trouble getting them to pay attention to the rest of the lesson, since they all wanted to read Song of Songs.
Oh, well, anything that gets them to crack the covers of the book . . .
