We hear Paul Miller's trumpet
By walking Beth down the aisle, her father signifies, "I endorse Chris as God's best choice for you, and am bringing you to him."
To Chris he demonstrates, "I am presenting Beth to you, whom I have trained up as a pure bride."
Paul did likewise in his preparation of those he taught in Corinth.
For I am jealous over you with godly jealousy: for I have espoused you to one husband,
that I may present [you as] a chaste virgin to Christ. 2 Corinthians 11:2
