Lecture 4, Husbands, Part 2:
Dr. Sproul tells husbands to remember the obvious: “You’re not Jesus, and, in fact, you need Jesus.” He belabors this simple truth, because a husband can all too easily place himself on the same level as Christ. A husband certainly has the call to love, sanctify, and exercise authority as Christ does (Eph. 5). However, sin causes the parallel to break down, while the call to be like Him remains. This lesson, then, focuses on the duties of husbands to emulate Christ in His threefold office (munus triplex) of prophet, priest, and king.
