The Jewish Wedding Custom and Christ's Return
Show Notes

In this episode we'll look at an often overlooked and misunderstood concept in the New Testament that relates to the coming of Christ in a spiritual mystery, the Jewish Wedding Custom.  This is one of those cultural teachings that helps us to unlock the New Testament, and even the teachings in the New Testament about the return of Christ.  Remember, when we read the New Testament, we've go to see it through the lenses of the original customs and cultures.  

There are three parts of a Jewish Wedding Custom...

  • The Covenant: A legally binding marriage is formed between a groom and a bride's father.
  • The Consummation: At a future time set by the father, the groom will return to fetch his bride and take her to his house.  
  • The Celebration: After the consummation, which is the physical union of the bride and groom in the house of the bride, a celebration follows of all who are involved together in the marriage to celebrate the union.  

"For this reason a man shall leave his father and mother and be joined to his wife, and the two shall become one flesh." This is a great mystery, but I speak concerning Christ and the church.  
 Ephesians 5:31-32 NKJV
