45 BIBLE VERSES ON TYPES OF CHRISTIAN RELATIONSHIP

Introduction

Everyone is in a relationship. We understand this well when we realize the various platforms on which relationship exists and classify them as type of relationship.

Our understanding is also enlightened as we consider the various ways in which these types of relationship played out in the bible.

As such, this article is aimed at outlining the various bible chapters describing each of the various relationships cadre as listed in my previous article.

These verses below explain relationship as anyone we are connected to with a significant helpful part shared.

In Genesis 2:18, the phrase ‘help mate’ also mean counterparts. That is, a part opposite.

While in Eccl 4:9-12 relationships is seen from such words as; ‘Two’ i.e.; another part, contrasted with alone. ‘Fellow’ i.e.; associate, companion. ‘Another’ i.e. second part.

Two are better than one; because they have a good reward for their labour. For if they fall, the one will lift up his fellow: but woe to him that is alone when he falleth; for he hath not another to help him up. Again, if two lie together, then they have heat: but how can one be warm alone? And if one prevail against him, two shall withstand him; and a threefold cord is not quickly broken. (Ecc 4:9-12)

In 1Co 12:12, 14, & Eph 4:25; relationship could be seen as Members together.

For as the body is one, and hath many members, and all the members of that one body, being many, are one body: so also is Christ.

But now hath God set the members every one of them in the body, as it hath pleased him. And if they were all one member, where were the body? But now are they many members, yet but one body. And the eye cannot say unto the hand, I have no need of thee: nor again the head to the feet, I have no need of you.

(1Co 12:18-21)
