Looking for prooftexts
The utter horror Jesus expresses about divorce emerges from the factors sketched above: Adam and Eve’s intent, design, and task; the glory of loving relationship; the covenant relationship of God with us as the One who is for us, and how this defines biblical love; and the perichoresis of the Trinity. Hauerwas gets it exactly right here: if we come to this text looking for reasons to justify divorce, we miss the whole point.— Sermon on the Mount, pages 95-96
