Bible 101 - Redemption and Covenant (pt. 5)
The Hebrew Bible uses a metaphor of marriage for the relationship between God and Israel. God is the faithful and true husband, while Israel is an unfaithful bride.
The wedding takes place at Mount Sinai, and marriage language is used throughout by the prophets to emphasize the closeness of this special relationship.
Marriage is also a metaphor for redemption. God’s plan of redemption will end with humanity intimately dwelling with the presence of God.
In the New Testament, the metaphor of marriage/redemption continues with Jesus as the bridegroom.
Marriage/redemption language is used throughout the New Testament to communicate God’s cosmic plan.
Join us as we explore this rich metaphor and see how Jesus is the bridegroom we await to take us to be with him.
