The Bride of Christ

By Daniel Valles, Posted to Editor's Blog: 10/21/2014

New Article! The Lord opened a great door of opportunity recently for me to teach on this subject with a local church, and it was an incredible blessing to review and share Christ’s magnificent work on our behalf.

This article reviews the ancient and traditional Jewish wedding model, and how Christ’s work on our behalf mirrors the pattern in many incredible ways. When we see that the Church (the body of believers) is called the Bride of Christ, it also helps us more fully understand and grasp many of the promises, exhortations, prophecies - and gives greater insight into our relationship with our loving Saviour, Jesus Christ. Maranatha!
