Thanks to the Exodus, redemption and marriage are closely related (Ezekiel 16;
Hosea 2; Isaiah 25-27). In the book of Ephesians, Paul talks a lot about the redemption of

the image of Jesus, and, in chapter five, he talks about this transformation from the
standpoint of a wedding. It is this last point that will be the focus of this essay. Download the printable version or the mobile version below.
