"This mystery is profound, and I am saying that it refers to Christ and the church." -Ephesians 5:32
Marriage is not a human invention; it is a divine revelation of eternal significance. From the beginning, God designed marriage to convey a greater reality—the passionate, unfailing, redeeming love of God for sinners, the eternal romance between Christ and his bride. Marriage, at its core, is of God and reveals a wonderful truth about God.
Ray Ortlund's Marriage and the Mystery of the Gospel traces the biblical view of marriage—from the first marriage in the garden of Eden to the ultimate marriage in the book of Revelation—unveiling a vision of marriage that dignifies our own imperfect unions as a display of the gospel. With a scholar's head and a lover's heart, Ortlund examines marriage through the lenses of creation, fall, law and gospel, illuminating the profound mystery of marriage, namely that it reveals Christ, is for the sake of Christ, and pursues Christ. This volume from the Short Studies in Biblical Theology series leads readers to honor and exalt marriage as a grand display of the gospel, offering guidance and hope for our own marriages today.
