Note that Christ is the bridegroom. He is not the dinner served at the marriage feast, although some would like us to think so.

Does the marriage happen when we accept him as our husband, the forgiving and merciful God, or when we sacrifice him to the merciless God, even for our mistakes and trespasses?

Quote:
Will the LORD be pleased with thousands of rams, or with ten thousands of rivers of oil? shall I give my firstborn for my transgression, the fruit of my body for the sin of my soul?

He hath shewed thee, O man, what is good; and what doth the LORD require of thee, but to do justly, and to love mercy, and to walk humbly with thy God?
It's odd, isn't it, to find such verses in the OT.
