Pondering...pondering

Okay, every once in a while one comes upon a Bible verse that jumps up in one's face and one starts thinking...."okay...and what does this mean exactly?"

So two verses:

As a bridegroom adorns his head like a priest. Isaiah 61:10-11

He that has suffered in the flesh is freed from sin 1 Peter 4:1

Now what the heck are they supposed to mean?

I suspect the first one has something to do with Christ being both our priest and husband...but it's used to describe God's people (I think) Read Is 61:1-11

And then the other? Does it mean that if you really suffered you will go to heaven...regardless of knowing Jesus? What is the nature of suffering? I mean Lazarus went to heaven and was in Abraham's bosom and he didn't know Jesus. But it seems like a wild far-fetched idea. But there is something about suffering in the flesh that destroys sin.

Gotta think. -C
