Our next book we are going to consider is Ecclesiastes. It is one of the most readable books of the O.T. The Book of Ecclesiastes is a reality check for the modern world. The Book of Ecclesiastes is the fourth of five Megillot or Scrolls (See also Song of Songs, Ruth, Lamentations, and Esther) read throughout the year during the Festivals of the Lord (Leviticus 23) or Jewish Memorial Holidays.

The book of Ecclesiastes contains Proverbs, maxims, sayings, and is largely an autobiographical story. Solomon wrote it late in his life, approximately B.C. He had become aware of the mistakes that he made throughout his life and began to document them.

The title Ecclesiastes is a Latin transliteration of the Greek translation of the Hebrew Kohelet (also written as Koheleth, Qoheleth or Qohelet), the pseudonym used by the author of the book. In traditional Jewish texts and throughout church history (up to the 18th and 19th centuries), King Solomon is named as the author, but modern scholars.

The Book of Ecclesiastes has in all ages been ascribed to Solomon. The tradition of the Jews states that he composed this book in his old age, after he had repented of his former vicious practices and had become by sad experience, convinced of the vanity of everything terrestrial, except piety and wisdom.

The author of the Book of Ecclesiastes and its date. The Book of Ecclesiastes is a book about wisdom. We know that people in Israel were studying wisdom very carefully during the rule of King Solomon (1 Kings ). That was probably years before Christ’s birth. Ecclesiastes brilliantly captures the toil and joy, fleeting success and unanswered questions that we all experience in our work.

It is one of many Christian workers’ favorite books of Bible, and its narrator — called the Teacher in most English translations — has a lot to say about work. The argument of Ecclesiastes does not flow smoothly.

It meanders, with jumps and starts, through the general messiness of human experience, to which it is a response. There is also an intermingling of poetry and prose. Nevertheless, the following outline seeks to reflect, at least in a general way, the structure of the book and its main discourses.

Excerpt from "Lecture V" in Lectures on the Book of Ecclesiastes by Ralph Wardlaw (Philadelphia: W. Woodward, ). Note: The text has not been modified. The book of Ecclesiastes is a unique book in the Bible that has delighted and confused Christians throughout the years.

It is our second book in the Wisdom Series. One thing that makes it unique is where scripture relies on ancient wisdom as core to understanding God’s world, Ecclesiastes’ Wisdom is based off of experimentation.

Originally delivered as a series of lectures from the pulpit in –, Ralph Wardlaw offers detailed exposition of the text with regard for composition of the text, characterization of the text’s author, and scope of the text.

Seeking to disseminate the vital themes and applications found in the text, volume one contains twelve lectures that move expositionally verse-by-verse. 12 I, the Teacher, was king over Israel in Jerusalem.

13 I applied my mind to study and to explore by wisdom all that is done under the heavens. What a heavy burden God has laid on mankind. 14 I have seen all the things that are done under the sun; all of them are meaningless, a chasing after the wind. Ecclesiastes Introduction. The Book of Ecclesiastes is a weird fit.

If the books of the Bible were puzzle pieces, you would have a hard time figuring out where to put Ecclesiastes—it's the kind of piece that needs to be jammed into place, or one that you might be tempted to adjust with a pair of scissors.Product Description.

The book of Ecclesiastes powerfully conveys the meaninglessness of life without God. The world promises fulfillment, but in the end, it cannot truly satisfy the longings of the human heart. This week study helps Christians understand the necessity of fearing God in a fallen and frustrating world, 4/4(1).An example is the book of Ecclesiastes which constitutes a second attack on the optimism and piety of conventional religious thinking.

The lecture concludes with a discussion of a number of Psalms, their genre, purpose, and language.
