Wilson's Dictionary of Bible Types
Song of Solomon 5:14 (a) This is a type of the pure and perfect care which our Lord exercises over His bride because of the intimate relationship between them. It tells of an eternal devotion, which will never be broken. It tells of divine care, which is always sufficient. It tells of the beautiful love that is indescribable, and constant, without end.
Ezekiel 1:18 (a) It seems that the rings are synonymous with the wheels. They are a picture of GOD in action, progress, motivations from Heaven. The eyes indicate the Holy Spirit, who is Himself always intimately associated with all the works of GOD the Father and of GOD the Son. Their height indicates the magnificence and the greatness of the unsearchable ways of GOD. When we see the might and the majesty of His work in creation, and of His power in keeping the universe in order, this strikes us with awe.
Luke 15:22 (b) Here we see a token of the relationship between the Father and His child. It is a public acknowledgment from GOD that this one is His Child and His Son. It is a mark of identification in regard to relationship, as well as authority.
