The price Jesus had to pay for His bride.

Please read the following verses, and my comments bellow them.

Exd 2:1    NOW these are the judgments which you shall set before them:
Exd 21:2   "If you buy a Hebrew servant, he shall serve six years; and in the seventh he shall go out free and pay nothing.
Exd 21:3   "If he comes in by himself, he shall go out by himself; if he comes in married, then his wife shall go out with him.
Exd 21:4   "If his master has given him a wife, and she has borne him sons or daughters, the wife and her children shall be her master's, and he shall go out by himself.
Exd 21:5   "But if the servant plainly says, 'I love my master, my wife, and my children; I will not go out free,'
Exd 21:6   "then his master shall bring him to the judges. He shall also bring him to the door, or to the door post, and his master shall pierce his ear with an awl; and he shall serve him forever.

Deu 15:16   "And if it happens that he says to you, 'I will not go away from you,' because he loves you and your house, since he prospers with you,
Deu 15:17   "then you shall take an awl and thrust it through his ear to the door, and he shall be your servant forever. Also to your female servant you shall do likewise.

I have included the last two verses from the repetition in Deuteronomy 15:12-17, so as to show that the awl was driven, "into", the door, or the door post.

I think it is quite clear that the master is a type of, "God the Father", the servant a type of the "Jesus the son of God", and the wife given by the master to his servant, a type of, "the bride of Christ", the church.

However, you will have noticed, that if the Son wants to keep His bride, then there is a price to pay.  He has to be taken to the, "judges", and from judgement to a place symbolic of death by crucifixion, as He must stand with His back against upright timber, and have His flesh, "pierced", through with an awl, a type of a nail.
