Oklahoma City – May 24, 2022 – Seminary professor and author Dr. Miles V. Van Pelt will speak at the 2022 B.B. Warfield Memorial Lecture Series on “Recovering the Lost Message of the Song of Songs: The Wisdom of Marriage for the Church and the World,” June 3 to 4 at Oklahoma Christian University’s Scott Chapel in Oklahoma City.

“In a time when our culture is aggressively redefining marriage, gender, and sexuality, we must return to the wisdom of God’s word and embrace the truth of this wisdom song, both in the church and in the world,” said event chair Pastor Phil Bowersox. “This year’s lecture series will explore the confusion surrounding the interpretation of the Song of Songs which has caused the church to neglect and ignore this important book of the Old Testament.”

Lecture Schedule:
  • Friday, June 3: 7 to 7:50 p.m., “The Song of Songs and Genesis 1-3”; 8 to 8:50 p.m., “The Song of Songs and the Challenge of Interpretation”; and 9 to 9:30 p.m., question and answer session.
  • Saturday, June 4: 9:30 to 10:20 a.m., “The Song of Songs as Wisdom Literature”; 10:30 to 11:20 a.m., “The Song of Songs for Christian Living and Eschatological Life”; and 11:30 a.m. to 12:00 p.m., question and answer session.
