Genesis 1-11. Although much has been written on sexuality and marriage from the perspective of the Old and New Testaments, little attention has been given to what is perhaps the most engaging and elusive expression relating to the whole topic, namely, the 'one flesh' expression which occurs in the poetic climax of the Genesis 2 account of creation and recurs as a technical expression in the New Testament writing. The purpose of this paper is to explore the use of this expression in the Old and New Testaments in the interests of understanding more fully its content. [Excerpt].
