Richard Sibbes: I Am My Beloved, And My Beloved Is Mine

Powered by RedCircle

Richard Sibbes was a largely influential minister in the early 1600s. He is known for his “affectionate theology” and his elegant words on one’s relationship with Christ. He was a member of the church of England but would get in trouble at times for his ties to the puritans.

His sermon, “I Am My Beloved, And My Beloved Is Mine,” takes Song Of Solomon allegorically and puts Christ in the place of Solomon and the woman as the church. He then uses this relationship to describe our current relationship with Christ as we wait for Christ to come back.
