In this lecture, we will study what the Bible teaches us about the place that God has assigned to husbands in a biblical marriage. We will consider the husband's position and his chief pursuits. What does it mean for a husband to be the head of his wife? How does this relate to the relationship between Christ and the Church? Why does God tell husbands to love their wives, and what does this look like in practice? The apostle Paul writes to the Ephesians, “Husbands, love your wives, even as Christ also loved the church, and gave himself for it”. Together we will study how Christ is our great example as head of the church.
