Today's sermon begins by clarifying three types of oneness discussed last week with respect to the meaning of one flesh in Genesis 2:24. Then, four lessons from Genesis 2:15-24 are given about the role of women in the home (specifically toward her husband in marriage):
- Eve is the pattern for all wives.
- Eve is Adam's equal in worth and value as a fellow human being.
- Eve is Adam's companion.
- Eve is Adam's helper.
For this reason a man shall leave his father and his mother, and be joined to his wife; and they shall become one flesh.
