The Biblical Roles of Wives.
Regarding the foundation upon which the Lord established the relationship between husband and wife we read in Genesis 2:20-24: “And Adam gave names to all cattle, and to the fowl of the air, and to every beast of the field; but for Adam there was not found an help meet for him. And the LORD God caused a deep sleep to fall upon Adam, and he slept: and he took one of his ribs, and closed up the flesh instead thereof; And the rib, which the LORD God had taken from man, made he a woman, and brought her unto the man. And Adam said, This is now bone of my bones, and flesh of my flesh: she shall be called Woman, because she was taken out of Man. Therefore shall a man leave his father and his mother, and shall cleave unto his wife: and they shall be one flesh.” **In this way since a rib was taken from a man to make a woman, when they Biblically are joined in marriage they complete each other & “become one flesh”. Now as a result of the fall Genesis 3:16 says: “Unto the woman he said, I will greatly multiply thy sorrow and thy conception; in sorrow thou shalt bring forth children; and thy desire shall be to thy husband, and he shall rule over thee.” In this study we will be studying these verses with the New Testament verses regarding the Biblical role of wives and much will also be said about the Biblical roles of husbands.
