Nadprzyrodzona motywacja poddania żony mężowi w świetle Ef 5, 21–24
The Supernatural Motivation ofa Wife‘s Submission to her Husband in the Light of Eph 5:21-24
Languages of publication
One of the most important biblical texts about marriage are included in Ef 5. This fragment analyzes various aspects of the relationship between husband and wife. According to this, a special attribute of Christian marriage is sacramentality, consisting in participation of spouses, as personal communion, in salvation mystery understood as a deep bond of Christ with Church, thanks to which the marriage of Christians assumes a preternatural dimension. Moreover, Christ`s bond with Church is an example of mutual relations between spouses. A detailed mutual relation of husband and wife is stressed here, and especially the fact of wife`s submission to her husband, that can not be unders- tood as any sort of slavery, but rather as a form of Christian`s calling and the serve to Christ. As Christ is a head of the Church and takes care about the full development of it, especially in salva- tion, the same should be a husband for his wife.
