The Jewish Wedding

If you have been following along, you know that we have been equating the Feast of Trumpets with the marriage of the Bride (the church) to Christ (the Bridegroom).

…the bridegroom came, and those who were ready went in with him to the wedding; and the door was shut.

Matthew 25:10

 

Husbands, love your wives, just as Christ also loved the church and gave Himself for her.

Ephesians 5:25

The thing about weddings is that every culture has their own traditions. I can assure you that American weddings differ from Chinese weddings or African weddings, etc. Furthermore, in the American culture there is trendy freedom for a Bride and Groom to deviate from tradition and add their own personal touches. So, it can be very easy to have a distorted view of what the marriage of the church to Christ might look like depending on what culture you are accustomed. That is why we would like for you to watch this video that details what the traditional Jewish wedding entailed. Since Jesus is Jewish and explained things or taught parables that reflected the relevant Jewish culture He was within, we must learn from our Jewish roots to better understand the scriptures and picture of the coming wedding. Hope you enjoy!
