Marriage – A Holy Covenant

Marriage is a holy covenant that represents the relationship between Christ and his Bride, or the Body of Christ. Marriage was first established by God in Genesis, chapter 2.

“Therefore a man shall leave his father and his mother and hold fast to his wife, and they shall become one flesh” – Genesis 2:24 (ESV).

And Pharisees came up to him and tested him by asking, “Is it lawful to divorce one’s wife for any cause?” He answered, “Have you not read that he who created them from the beginning made them male and female, and said, ‘Therefore a man shall leave his father and his mother and hold fast to his wife, and the two shall become one flesh’? So they are no longer two but one flesh. What therefore God has joined together, let not man separate.” – Matthew 19:3-6 (ESV).
