The Marriage of Good and Truth
Featured Topic #51: The Marriage of Good and Truth.
The story of Jacob uncovering a well for Rachel's flocks and then working so long for her sake (Genesis 29) gives us a beautiful picture of marriage love. The New Church teaches that another kind of marriage is also depicted here — the combining of good and truth which takes place in the mind of every person who seeks to follow the Lord.
