Jen, Do I understand you to say the Church, the Body of Christ, is Christ's bride? Need BCV, please!


BCV = Book-Chapter-Verse. Here are several (the most prominent), but not all, mentions that the Church is the Body of Jesus Christ: 1 Corinthians 12:12-13, 27; Ephesians 1:22-23; 4:13-16; Colossians 1:18, 24. Now while I believe it's not possible, please furnish a verse or passage which says: The Church is the bride of Christ. OR, the bride of Christ is His Body, the Church. Thank you in advance for your effort. Blessings, peace, and love in the joy and privilege of serving Christ & in testifying of Him! Rich Prickitt

    Dear Jen, Your reply is so far off from what Scripture says about Jesus, the Lamb of God, and His wife, "the holy city, new (holy)Jerusalem," which comes down from God out of heaven, prepared as a bride adorned for her husband. (Cf. Rev. 21:2, 9-11.)
