So apparently I missed the last Bible Study which was the last of the series on the Gospel of John. We will be starting the new study series on Ecclesiastes.
Bijan Mirtolooi did an hour study at Redeemer once. I have the pdf.
Some at Puritanboard suggested Luther's work on it (volume 15) I have all volumes on Logos.
Some suggested Hengstenberg's commentary, which I downloaded.
Based on Logos' 26 Volume on the subject, I also downloaded ALL of it ($260 worth or $51 on sales) Charles Bridges, Robert Buchanan, etc. commentaries. I can't believe this Logos charging so much on free materials. I'll put all these in a folder called Ecclesiastes in my E-library.
I just realized that I also have 賈玉銘's 聖經要義 series. Ecclesiastes is included in volume 4: Wisdom books: From Job to Song of Songs.
賈玉銘 like many believed that this is what Solomon wrote after his repentance. When I brought it up in GCC Bible study, it would seem like the pastor agreed but also alluded to the fact that some within Christendom believed otherwise, that either Solomon did not really write the whole of it or he did not write it at all, or possibly has nothing to do with his repentance because the strongest point that they have, so it would seem, is that Solomon's kingdom did not get any better after that. I think this is easy to rebut: David clearly shown repentance yet his Kingdom didn't do much better either. A curse is a curse. God never guarantees that He will remove ALL his punishments upon repentance. Yet, true saints would still persevere under hardship which is from God's discipline. Therefore, the reasoning that things must turn better upon repentance, is not a sound one. Repentance gets you closer to God and peace with God, not closer to self comfort.
