“It’s the middle of the night. You’re startled out of a sound sleep by the sudden clamor of shouting and the harsh blast of shofar blaring in the dark streets. The din grows louder as you lean out your window and see the approaching parade of noisy, laughing villagers carrying burning torches and blowing musical horns. A man crowned with laurel leaves leads the revelers; and carried high on a queenly litter rides a veiled woman, splendidly adorned. The bridegroom is coming with his bride, and all his guests are rejoicing. There’s going to be a wedding…

Galilean weddings are symbolic of the celebration of Christ’s wedding to His Bride, the Church. It is a day of pure majesty, joy, and love that surpasses every other celebration in the Bible.

A day will come when joy, majesty, and love will eclipse all other days in Scripture. It’s a day that fulfills Christ’s immeasurable love and longing for His Church, the Bride of Christ. Even the incarnation, the cross, and the resurrection attest to this.

The Galilean Wedding is a lively and moving re-creation of how the people of Jesus’ time celebrated a wedding and how He constantly pointed to it as He taught. Using Galilean-style wedding traditions as a metaphor, Jesus revealed the uncompromising sanctity of marriage, how the world will end and how much He loves His church. The Galilean Wedding runs 1:20.
