The Meaning of Marriage

Class 6: Leaving

February 19, 2023 Speaker: The Rev. Justin C. Hare

Passage: Genesis 2:24

This week Justin examines the chapters in Dan Allender and Tremper Longman III's The Intimate Mystery that explore what it means to leave father and mother (Genesis 2:24). Far from being a one time event, leaving our family of origin and all of our past allegiances is an ongoing process that is essential if we are to forge trust in this new ultimate allegiance of marriage. The marriage relationship must have privacy, primacy and power moreso than any other relationship in order for us to live into the fulness of what God created marriage to be.
