While the Bible does teach about the bride of the Lamb, I would have to agree with the Baptist Briders in that I am not the bride, and neither are they.
The covenant marriage language is reserved throughout the Bible to refer to Israel and Jerusalem. The relationship for the saints of this dispensation is that of members of Christ’s body, not as a covenanted wife.
Follow this study through the prophets as God espoused, married, divorced, and promised a future marriage to faithful Israel. Find out the crucial difference between the marriage language for Israel and the great mystery about the church and Christ.
