|General Note:|| Part 5 -- Apocalyptic or ideal imagery on the human level has three forms: individual, social, and sexual. Sexual imagery, in which two become one, resolves the conflict of individual and social ideals of human life. The symbolism of bridegroom and bride expands to become the marriage of a king to his land or his people and the relationship of Christ with his church. The demonic figure is the great whore, whose spouse is antichrist. -- Part 6 -- A more comprehensive pattern of female figure in the Bible emerges in this program. In addition to the ideal marital figure of the bride, there is the ideal maternal figure with its demonic counterpart. There is also an intermediate category of female figure, both marital and maternal, representing humanity going through the process of sin and redemption. Another aspect of this human level of symbolism is the royal metaphor: the bridegroom is also a king, who represents the unity of his people in a single body.
