Thematic Bible: Husbands and wives becoming one


Thematic Bible



You know that your bodies belong to the Messiah, don't you? Should I take what belongs to the Messiah and unite them with a prostitute? Certainly not! You know that the person who unites himself with a prostitute becomes one body with her, don't you? For it is said, "The two will become one flesh."


He answered them, "Haven't you read that the one who made them at the beginning "made them male and female' and said, "That is why a man will leave his father and mother and be united with his wife, and the two will become one flesh'? So they are no longer two, but one flesh. Therefore, what God has joined together, man must never separate."

But from the beginning of creation, "God made them male and female.' That's why "a man will leave his father and mother and be united with his wife, and the two will become one flesh.' So they're no longer two, but one flesh. read more.
Therefore, what God has joined together, man must never separate."

In the same way, husbands must love their wives as they love their own bodies. A man who loves his wife loves himself. For no one has ever hated his own body, but he nourishes and tenderly cares for it, as the Messiah does the church. For we are parts of his body of his flesh and of his bones. read more.
"That is why a man will leave his father and mother and be united with his wife, and the two will become one flesh."
