The importance of marriage 1 Corinthians chapter 7, 3-4

30th June 2020

1 Corinthians chapter 7 verse 3

3 The husband must fulfill his duty to his wife, and likewise also the wife to her husband. 1 Corinthians 7:3

Paul follows through good Jewish advice.  The word fulfil here is ‘didomi’ obviously in in terms of conjugal rights.  Both parties are supposed to show affection and love to the other in the physical form.  Maybe render would be a good word here.  Conjugal rights are equal on both the mans and the woman’s side.

1 Corinthians chapter 7 verse 4

 

 

4 The wife does not have authority over her own body, but the husband does; and likewise, also the husband does not have authority over his own body, but the wife does. 1 Corinthians 7:4

There are equal rights on both sides of the gender divide.
