In Christianity, the following things are analogous. The correspondence is rather beautiful - so much so that it is one of the things that convinces me of the truth of Christianity:
- A wedding feast; the banquet table.
- The crucifixion of Christ; the cross.
- Jewish sacrifice; the altar.
- The Eucharist; the altar.
- The marital act; the marital bed.
I'm sure someone could easily write a book on the beauty of the relationships between these things.
