Wilson's Dictionary of Bible Types
Song of Solomon 2:1 (c) Some, because of its beauty and fragrance, believe it is a type of the Lord JESUS. Others believe it is a type of the church because of its abundance and because of the presence of thorns in the midst of the flowers. The church, in GOD's sight, is beautiful and fragrant. It adorns all that is around it.
