In Ephesians 5, Paul says, “This is a profound mystery—but I am talking about Christ and the church.” This verse is teaching us that there are some things we would never know about marriage if we don’t know about how you relate to Christ by faith. Conversely, there are things we would never know about our relationship with Christ if we didn’t know about marriage.
In a sense, one teaches you about the other, and you can’t completely understand one without understanding the other. We’re going to look more closely at what marriage teaches us about our relationship with Jesus and what our relationship with Jesus teaches us about marriage.
This sermon was preached by Rev. Timothy Keller at Redeemer Presbyterian Church on October 13, 1991. Series “Marriage”. Scripture: Ephesians 5:22-33.
