Marriage and Family in the New Testament
“Marriage and Family in the New Testament,” in Marriage and Family in the Biblical World (ed. Ken Campbell; Downers Grove, Ill.: InterVarsity, 2003), 240-84.
The following survey will take its point of departure from the biblical creation account. The first topic of discussion is that of homo- versus heterosexuality. This is followed by treatments of the New Testament teaching on marital roles: divorce, remarriage, singleness, and children and parenting. The importance of marriage and the family in church leadership and the issue of spiritual warfare as it relates to marriage and the family are briefly addressed as well. The
conclusion sets forth the distinctness of the Christian understanding of the subject.
