Sermon Notes

The Jewish wedding is one of the cornerstones of scripture. During the first century, the Jewish wedding customs were long recognized as a pattern for the redemption. of mankind.  This is rather hard to miss, particularly when John referred specifically to the marriage supper of the Lamb! (Revelation 19:9).  Because we live in the modern western world, we do not fully catch the significance of the ancient Jewish marriage customs and how Paul used them in parallel to the marriage of the first century church.  Jesus and Paul paid meticulous attention to detail as they use the Jewish marriage customs in scripture.  Every Christian should have a good book on ancient Jewish customs due to how often they are used in the Bible.  Today, with our guest speaker Johnnie Achord, we will examine those marriage customs and how they provide a picture to the teachings of Christ and His bride the church.
