I am a scripting language connoisseur, regular expression aficionado, network geek, general lover of Linux and a frequent contributor to open source software. I transitioned to programming from other work because I was too busy automating my own work environment to actually do the other work. I have a hobby interest in cartography. For more see my personal site. Most importantly, my life is defined by the grace of God given to men through Jesus Christ. It is my ambition that everything I do would reflect His glory and point people towards Him.

comment Who is speaking in Song of Solomon 8:6-7?
@swasheck: The reason I migrated here instead of just closing (it doesn't work any way you look at it on C.SE) is I was hoping it could be framed in a way that any gaps could be filled in. See my edits.

Backed off on the restrictive scope (not just Christian allegory but any researched interpretations welcome)

Please take the time and effort to compose your posts using proper capitalization. This is a supposed to be a scholarly site with academic level content. You appeal to only wanting scholarly responses, but please make the effort yourself to make your question readable. Thank you.

The plea for scholarly responses based on a knowledge of Greek should be unnecessary here, that should be all you get in the first place. If you don't, we can deal with that.

I'd to see some actual history research on this too. I'd like to see somebody with some data explaining the shepherding habits of the 1st century the Nazareth area villages. I'm pretty sure from my own experience this is on the right track, but a Sunday School illustration doesn't help settle the matter.

I don't know about the historical usage (and am interested in seeing answers here) but I've seen this physically done in modern day Turkey. Even if some preachers are telling it as an imaginary scene, it is also quite real and produces a ready image for the right audience.

comment Reading the Bible via verse and chapter and not getting the intended meaning?
Hmmmm. I agree that this question is too broad to be constructive as-is in the SE format. At the same time I have an answer rattling around in my head. Maybe if I can figure out what much more specific question could be asked to which my thoughts would be an answer...
