The Biblical passage describing the “wedding of the Lamb” is found in the Book of Revelation, exactly in chapter 19 verses 7-9:

“Let us rejoice and exult and give glory to him, for the marriage of the Lamb has come, and his Bride has been prepared; it has been granted to her to be clothed in fine linen, shining and pure”-because fine linen is the righteous work of the saints. And the angel said to me, “Write this, Blessed are those who are invited to the wedding of the Lamb.” And he said to me, “These are the true words of GOD.”

The Book of Revelation is known for its rich symbolism and apocalyptic imagery. Unlike other New Testament writings, it uses vivid and often cryptic visual language to convey its message. This book, traditionally attributed to the apostle John, is structured in the form of a prophecy revealing the final victory of good over evil and the fulfillment of the DIvin plan for humanity. The “Marriage of the Lamb” is a central image of this narrative, representing the triumphant and eternal union of the Messiah (Christ) with the righteous at the end of time.

The mystical union of Revelation for ASH

Interpretation at ASH (Abrahamic Study Hall) of this “mystical union” in Revelation plunges into a sea of symbolism, inviting readers to transcend the written text to discover a divine message that, though rooted in the past, speaks with urgency to the present and illuminates the future. Interpretation that is not limited to the millennial framework of the writing of Revelation, but extends to the eternal relevance of the Divine Message, the one that has never ceased, and never will, to be delivered to humanity.

This union in Revelation 19 sees the Spirit of the Messiah, i.e., the LORD’s anointed, the Christ, to rest one day upon every believer on earth, creating a “breath” of union that will enable GOD’s people to think and act as one body with a unified mind. Only through this mystical realization will conflicts between peoples be resolved and each individual sincerely strive to assist “those who are left behind,” supported in turn by “those who are ahead.” Against this backdrop, Revelation is revealed not only as an end times tale, but as a prophetic vision of universal reconciliation and unity, where knowledge and mutual understanding among believers of different Abrahamic traditions become the bridge to lasting peace and fruitful cooperation in the name of divinity.
