The Bride

Scripture portrays Christ as the divine bride groom and the church as his beloved bride – an image providing rich and important spiritual lessons. However, over the years many of these lessons have been lost or made less rich by our lack of awareness of the events that surrounded weddings in the time of Christ. By looking at both historical Hebrew rituals, customs and traditions and those that are still practiced in Jewish communities today, we are amazed by the great number of times that wedding imagery is used in the New Testament. When we see these scriptures with their original wedding context we gain a deeper insight into the relationship Christ desires with us and what it means to be his Beloved. Please come and join us as we explore how we are truly the bride of Christ and the promise and meaning it brings to our daily lives.
