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 ).

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.

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, ).

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.

The Book of Ecclesiastes has been a great puzzle to many of the learned. They cannot understand how a king like Solomon could have had such an experience or have written such a book.
