This is a great mystery: but I speak concerning Christ and the church.
All Commentaries on Ephesians 5:32 Go To Ephesians 5
Tertullian of Carthage
Small in the eyes of heretics but great in the eyes of the apostles are the Creator’s works. Of just such a great mystery the apostle speaks when he says: “But I speak of Christ and the church.” He says this to confirm the mystery, not to undermine it. He shows us that the mystery was prefigured beforehand by the One who is the author of the mystery. .
