In Ephesians 5, Paul says, “This is a profound mystery—but I am talking about Christ and the church.” This verse is teaching us that there are some things we would never know about marriage if we don’t know about how you relate to Christ by faith. Conversely, there are things we would never know about our relationship with Christ if we didn’t know about marriage.

When you look at marriage, you see things you would never know about a relationship with Christ otherwise. In a sense, one teaches you about the other, and you can’t completely understand one without understanding the other. What does marriage teach us about our relationship with Jesus and what does our relationship with Jesus teach us about marriage?

This sermon was preached by Rev. Timothy Keller at Redeemer Presbyterian Church on October 13, 1991. Series "Marriage". Scripture: Ephesians 5:22-33.
