What Did Jesus Really Say About Divorce

An Alternative Interpretation of Matthew 5:31&32 and Its Implications for Counseling Troubled Marriages in the Church

by Todd Bordow

For many Christians it is a forgone conclusion that there are only two reasons, or exceptions, that the Bible allows for divorce; desertion and adultery. A careful study of scripture, as well as how the church has understood divorce throughout its history, reveals that may not be the case. By approaching the Bible as a unified whole on the issue of divorce, as well as considering the application of the Bible’s teaching on divorce throughout church history, Dr. Bordow challenges the traditional view of the two exceptions. Dr. Bordow also offers a model for counseling troubled marriages based on the Scriptures and many years of pastoral experience.
