Jewish Wedding Parallels



     THE MOHAR:

      THE FATHER OFFERS A BRIDEPRICE OF GREAT VALUE, INDICATIVE OF THE VALUE THAT HE PLACES ON THE BRIDE.

      THE "MOHAR" WAS REQUIRED BY LAW:

      ROMANS 8:3-4 FOR WHAT THE LAW COULD NOT DO, IN THAT IT WAS WEAK THROUGH THE FLESH, GOD SENDING HIS OWN SON IN THE LIKENESS OF SINFUL FLESH, AND FOR SIN, CONDEMNED SIN IN THE FLESH: THAT THE RIGHTEOUSNESS OF THE LAW MIGHT BE FULFILLED IN US, WHO WALK NOT AFTER THE FLESH, BUT AFTER THE SPIRIT.

      THE MOHAR WAS PAID:

      I CORINTHIANS 6:20 FOR YE ARE BOUGHT WITH A PRICE: THEREFORE GLORIFY GOD IN YOUR BODY AND SPIRIT, WHICH ARE GOD'S.

      REVELATION 5:9 AND THEY SANG A NEW SONG, SAYING, THOU ART WORTHY TO TAKE THE BOOK, AND TO OPEN THE SEALS THEREOF; FOR THOU WAST SLAIN, AND HAST REDEEMED US TO GOD BY THY BLOOD,

      THE HIGH PRICE OF THE MOHAR INDICATES THE VALUE THAT THE FATHER PLACED ON THE BRIDE:

      JOHN 3:16 FOR GOD SO LOVED THE WORLD, THAT HE GAVE HIS ONLY BEGOTTEN SON, THAT WHOSOEVER BELIEVES IN HIM SHOULD NOT PERISH,

      I PETER 1:18-19 FORASMUCH AS YE KNOW THAT YE WERE NOT REDEEMED WITH CORRUPTIBLE THINGS, SUCH AS SILVER AND GOLD, FROM YOUR VAIN CONVERSATION RECEIVED BY TRADITION FROM YOUR FATHERS; BUT WITH THE PRECIOUS BLOOD OF CHRIST, AS OF A LAMB WITHOUT BLEMISH AND WITHOUT SPOT: WHO VERILY WAS FOREORDAINED BEFORE THE FOUNDATION OF THE WORLDBUT HAVE EVERLASTING LIFE.

      THE MATTAN:

      THE BRIDEGROOM OFFERS THE BRIDE A GIFT, INDICATIVE OF THE VALUE THAT HE PLACES ON THE BRIDE.

      THE "MATTAN" WAS A GIFT:

      ETERNAL LIFE

      JOHN 4:14 BUT WHOSOEVER DRINKETH OF THE WATER THAT I SHALL GIVE HIM SHALL NEVER THIRST; BUT THE WATER THAT I SHALL GIVE HIM SHALL BE IN HIM A WELL OF WATER SPRINGING UP INTO EVERLASTING LIFE.

      JOHN 5:24 VERILY, VERILY, I SAY UNTO YOU, HE THAT HEARETH MY WORD,AND BELIEVETH ON HIM THAT SENT ME HATH EVERLASTING LIFE,

      JOHN 15:13 GREATER LOVE HATH NO MAN THAN THIS, THAT A MAN LAY DOWN HIS LIFE FOR HIS THAT WHICH HE LOVES.

      JOHN 16:27 FOR THE FATHER LOVETH YOU, BECAUSE YE HAVE LOVED ME, AND HAVE BELIEVED THAT I CAME FROM GOD.

      PEACE

      JOHN 14:27 PEACE I LEAVE WITH YOU, MY PEACE I GIVE UNTO YOU; NOT AS THE WORLD GIVETH, GIVE I UNTO YOU. LET NOT YOUR HEART BE TROUBLED, NEITHER LET IT BE AFRAID.

      EPHESIANS 2:14 FOR HE IS OUR PEACE, WHO HATH MADE BOTH ONE, AND HATH BROKEN DOWN THE MIDDLE WALL OF PARTITION BETWEEN US;

      ASSURANCE

      JOHN 14:1-3 LET NOT YOUR HEART BE TROUBLED; YE BELIEVE IN GOD, BELIEVE ALSO IN ME . IN MY FATHER'S HOUSE ARE MANY MANSIONS; IF IT WERE NOT SO, I WOULD HAVE TOLD YOU. I GO TO PREPARE A PLACE FOR YOU. AND IF I GO AND PREPARE A PLACE FOR YOU, I WILL COME AGAIN AND RECEIVE YOU UNTO MYSELF; THAT WHERE I AM, THERE YE MAY BE ALSO.

      JOHN 10:28 AND I GIVE UNTO THEM ETERNAL LIFE, AND THEY SHALL NEVER PERISH, NEITHER SHALL ANY MAN PLUCK THEM OUT OF MY HAND.

      THE SHILUHIM:

      THE FATHER OF THE BRIDE BESTOWED UPON THE BRIDE GIFTS.

      THE "SHILUHIM" WAS A GIFT TO THE BRIDE FOR THE PREPARATION FOR A NEW LIFE:

      THE HOLY SPIRIT

      JOHN 15:16 AND I WILL PRAY THE FATHER, AND HE SHALL GIVE YOU ANOTHER COMFORTER, THAT HE MAY ABIDE WITH YOU FOREVER; EVEN THE SPIRIT OF TRUTH; WHOM THE WORLD CANNOT RECEIVE, BECAUSE IT SEETH HIM NOT, NEITHER KNOWETH HIM: BUT YE SHALL KNOW HIM; FOR HE DWELLETH WITH YOU, AND SHALL BE IN YOU.

      II CORINTHIANS 1:21 NOW HE WHICH STABLISHETH US WITH YOU IN CHRIST,AND HATH ANNOINTED US, IS GOD; WHO HATH SEALED US, AND GIVEN THE EARNEST OF THE SPIRIT IN OUR HEARTS.

      BLESSINGS

      JAMES 1:17 EVERY GOOD GIFT AND EVERY PERFECT GIFT IS FROM ABOVE, AND COMETH DOWN FROM THE FATHER,

      EPHESIANS 2:8 FOR BY GRACE ARE YE SAVED THROUGH FAITH; AND THAT NOT OF YOURSELVES; IT IS THE GIFT OF GOD.

      THE KETUBAH:

      CONTRACT

      HEBREWS 9:28 SO CHRIST WAS ONCE OFFERED TO BEAR THE SINS OF MANY; AND UNTO THEM THAT LOOK FOR HIM SHALL HE APPEAR THE SECOND TIME WITHOUT SIN UNTO SALVATION.

      THE CUP OF ACCEPTANCE:

      INHERITANCE

      MATTHEW 26:27-29 AND WHEN HE HAD TAKEN A CUP AND GIVEN THANKS, HE GAVE IT TO THEM, SAYING DRINK FROM IT, ALL OF YOU; FOR THIS IS MY BLOOD OF THE COVENANT, WHICH IS POURED OUT FOR MANY FOR FORGIVENESS OF SINS.

      GOD THE FATHER DEEMED MANKIND TO BE WORTHY OF THE HIGH PRICE ( MOHAR ) TO OBTAIN THE CHURCH AS A BRIDE FOR HIS SON. JESUS VALUES THE CHURCH SO HIGHLY FOR A BRIDE THAT HE WAS WILLING TO SIGN THE KETUBAH WITH HIS OWN BLOOD AND TO DRINK THE CUP OF ACCEPTANCE BY SPILLING FORTH HIS OWN BLOOD ON A CROSS TO GIVE HER THE ETERNAL GIFT OF ETERNAL LIFE.
