Insights Into God’s Faithful Heart


The scope of this study has been limited to the covenantal aspect of marriage and the framework of rights and obligations that constitute marriage in the sight of God, earthly authorities, and society in general. From this perspective the nuances and definitions of the ‘husband/wife’ roles will not be examined, but instead the focus will be on the heart and attitudes needed by both parties to initiate and sustain the marriage covenant.

This study is divided into the following sections:

  • Divine Origin
  • Fidelity in the Law
  • Divorce within the Law
  • God's Heart Behind the Law
  • Insight from the Covenant
  • Divorce as "Unfaithfulness"
  • Jesus' Teaching
  • Paul's Teaching
