Jesus & women

It has been pointed out that sometimes it is hard for women to relate to Jesus because he was a man.  Jesus was acquainted with grief and sorrows, but how could he relate to the unique trials of women since he was a man?

Now consider this – that all Christians aim to become the bride of Christ.  Isn’t it equally strange that men seek to become spiritual women in heaven?  Although Jesus said we will be like angels in heaven, neither given or giving in marriage, yet the church is called the bride of Christ.  The New Testament has many references to the marriage of the Lamb. 

But we also have to remember that Jesus in his prehuman heavenly state was way beyond what we would consider a man.  He along with the Father created all things.  We will learn more in heaven.
