The Wedding Vow

30" x 36" oil

by Rosemarie Adcock,

This painting by Rosemarie Adcock,depicts a bride and groom becoming engaged. In ancient Jewish tradition, the groom initiated the marriage covenant, offering a cup of wine to the woman to whom he was to be betrothed, saying, "I give you my cup," a euphemism for "I give you my life." If the woman accepted the cup and drank from it, she was bound in her promise to marry the groom.

The wine is seen spilling from the cup, a symbol of the Groom's sacrifice, also a symbol of Christ's sacrifice for His people.
