The Bridegroom

We are looking at how Jesus defines what it means to be a Christian. In this message, we are exploring the idea of Jesus as a Bridegroom. We know from reading the Old Testament that God defines himself as the Bridegroom and his people as the bride. 

What does this mean for Christianity? It means that: 1) Christianity is a bond that consists both of duty and love; 2) Christianity is a bond of completing love; 3) Christianity is a bond of absolutely permanent love; 4) Christianity is a bond of utter exclusiveness; 5) Christianity is a bond of ravishing love. 

This sermon was preached by Dr. Timothy Keller at Redeemer Presbyterian Church on September 24, 1995. Series: Matthew 9. Scripture: Matthew 9:9-17.
