[John 17:21-23 KJV] (21) That they all may be one; as thou, Father, art in me, and I in thee, that they also may be one in us: that the world may believe that thou hast sent me. (22) And the glory which thou gavest me I have given them; that they may be one, even as we are one: (23) I in them, and thou in me, that they may be made perfect in one; and that the world may know that thou hast sent me, and hast loved them, as thou hast loved me.
[Gen 2:24 KJV] (24) Therefore shall a man leave his father and his mother, and shall cleave unto his wife: and they shall be one flesh.
Paul certainly uses the analogy in a similar "A-B-C" idea, layering the same analogy from different perspectives, first wives, then husbands:
[Eph 5:22-24 KJV] (22) Wives, submit yourselves unto your own husbands, as unto the Lord. (23) For the husband is the head of the wife, even as Christ is the head of the church: and he is the saviour of the body. (24) Therefore as the church is subject unto Christ, so let the wives be to their own husbands in every thing.
[Eph 5:25-32 KJV] (25) Husbands, love your wives, even as Christ also loved the church, and gave himself for it; (26) That he might sanctify and cleanse it with the washing of water by the word, (27) That he might present it to himself a glorious church, not having spot, or wrinkle, or any such thing; but that it should be holy and without blemish. (28) So ought men to love their wives as their own bodies. He that loveth his wife loveth himself. (29) For no man ever yet hated his own flesh; but nourisheth and cherisheth it, even as the Lord the church: (30) For we are members of his body, of his flesh, and of his bones. (31) For this cause shall a man leave his father and mother, and shall be joined unto his wife, and they two shall be one flesh. (32) This is a great mystery: but I speak concerning Christ and the church.
Should we then look to the making of Adam and Eve as models of:
- God and Sophia becoming one (Proverbs 8:22ff)
- God and Christ becoming one (Zech 14:9)
- Christ and the Assembly becoming one (John 17)
- Husbands and wives becoming one (Eph 5)
Is the Adam/Eve pattern of "becoming one" behind "that they may be one just as we are one"? IE: Are God, Sophia, Christ, the Assembly and husbands and wives all congruent?
I just opened a tangentially related question on B-Greek if anyone wants to follow along and/or participate.
