We will start by taking a look at Jesus as our Bridegroom. We will do this by studying Jewish wedding rituals and then seeing from Scripture how Jesus life and ministry fulfilled His role as a Jewish Bridegroom. We will be discussing Scripture from cover to cover, from Genesis to Revelation, so keep your hats on, it’s going to be a wild adventure through the greatest love story ever told.
Jesus is revealed in Scripture from beginning to end and many of us have heard many times how the story of Scripture is from garden to garden, but as we will see that is only the place, awesome and wonderful as it is. What we will discover in our study is that it is the relationship in each garden that matters. What is that relationship? That is what we will find so fascinating and thrilling at the same time.
Like I said we are going to be looking at a lot of Scripture. I am aware that many of you know that Jesus is our bridegroom and that He spoke of some of His responsibilities as the Bridegroom such as when He said, “I go to prepare a place for you.” We know that’s there. But I want to show you how much Scripture is loaded with it. There is no doubt in my mind that this will be a lot of information to process, but also very fulfilling in the end, so I am asking you from the start to hang in there to the end because we are headed straight for the Wedding and the Wedding Feast. Are you ready?
We will dive right in tomorrow by taking a look at the first step Jesus took as our bridegroom, continuing, of course, with the rest of the steps Yesuah took as our Bridegroom in the days ahead.
We will then do an in depth study of The Bride, The Unity of the Bride, and The Wedding and The Wedding Feast.
