The Central Idea: Husbands must take up their cross and die daily (love is not 'taking a bullet', but living your life for another). Explanations: Insights: While this section proceeds as part of the Exp of the Spirit-filled 'submitting to one another' section of 5:18-21, it is not proof of a 'mutual-submission' as taught by many. Rather, Paul has used the general (all inclusive) concept of submission for the church because that is man's lot in life. We are to be a submissive, obedient people. The gospel brings us all back into right order. However, within each social sphere, there are appropriate hierarchies within which we live and Paul is telling us how we are to function with them. Here are some interesting passages I’ve come across in reading The Dead Sea Scrolls Translated: The Qumran Texts in English Second Edition by Florentino Garcia Martinez (Eerdmans, 1996). I haven’t seen any articles discussing the conceptual and grammatical structure on “submitting to one another” in the Dead Sea Scrolls, and how they might help in discussions of Ephesians 5:21’s “submitting to one another” passage, but I would like to point out a similar structure I found. In Ephesians 5:21 we read, “Submitting to one another out of reverence for Christ.” Following this we see a breakout of three different groups, husbands and wives, parents and children, and slave owners and slaves. It is apparent that Paul spells out more clearly what he means by his general statement of submission with these three life applications. In the following, we see the same structure, a general command to obey one another, followed by a more explicit statement of what it looks like. One another texts in the Dead Sea Scrolls: And they shall be recorded in the Rule, each one before his fellow, according to his insight and his deeds, in such a way that each one obeys his fellow, junior under senior. 1QS V 23 (Matinez, 9) see also 4QSd Frag. 1 col. II 2-3 (Matinez, 22) When ever one fellow meets another, the junior shall obey the senior in work and money. 1QS VI 2 (Matinez, 9) see also 4QSd Frag. 1 col. II 6-7 (Matinez, 23) Questions: What is the nature of this "fear" that keeps reoccurring in these passages? The submission to one another is 'in the fear of Christ,' but then the wives are told to 'fear' their husbands. While many translations translate the word 'fear' with 'respect', contextually, it seems the realm of 'fear' ought to be retained given it's parallel use in 6:5, where Paul instructs the saves to obey in 'fear and trembling.' Given the emphasis on 'fear' then, how should we understand this fear? First, I would suggest that it should involve fearing the Lord and then a healthy fear of offending the one in authority over you. I doubt this means that there should be a cowering fear, but a loving fear which is fearful of offending. Cross-References:

οἱ ἄνδρες ἀγαπᾶτε τὰς γυναῖκας
Husbands, love your wives,
καθὼς καὶ ὁ Χριστὸς ἠγάπησεν τὴν ἐκκλησίαν καὶ ἑαυτὸν παρέδωκεν ὑπὲρ αὐτῆς
as Christ loved the church and gave himself up for her,
ἵνα αὐτὴν ἁγιάσῃ
that he might sanctify her,
καθαρίσας τῷ λουτρῷ τοῦ ὕδατος ἐν ῥήματι
having cleansed her by the washing of water with the word,
actionmanner
ἵνα παραστήσῃ αὐτὸς ἑαυτῷ ἔνδοξον τὴν ἐκκλησίαν
so that he might present the church to himself in splendor,
μὴ ἔχουσαν σπίλον ἢ ῥυτίδα ἤ τι τῶν τοιούτων
not having spot or wrinkle or any such thing,
ἀλλ' ἵνα ᾖ ἁγία καὶ ἄμωμος
that she might be holy and without blemish.

actionpurpose
οὕτως ὀφείλουσιν καὶ οἱ ἄνδρες ἀγαπᾶν τὰς ἑαυτῶν γυναῖκας
In the same way husbands ought [obliged] to love their wives
ὡς τὰ ἑαυτῶν σώματα ὁ ἀγαπῶν τὴν ἑαυτοῦ γυναῖκα ἑαυτὸν ἀγαπᾷ
as their own bodies. He who loves his wife loves himself.
comparison
οὐδεὶς γάρ ποτε τὴν ἑαυτοῦ σάρκα ἐμίσησεν
For no one ever hated his own flesh,
ἀλλὰ ἐκτρέφει καὶ θάλπει αὐτήν
but nourishes and cherishes it,
καθὼς καὶ ὁ Χριστὸς τὴν ἐκκλησίαν
just as Christ does the church,
ὅτι μέλη ἐσμὲν τοῦ σώματος αὐτοῦ
because we are members of his body.
ground
ἀντὶ τούτου καταλείψει ἄνθρωπος τὸν πατέρα καὶ τὴν μητέρα
" Therefore a man shall leave his father and mother
καὶ προσκολληθήσεται πρὸς τὴν γυναῖκα αὐτοῦ
and hold fast to his wife,
progression
καὶ ἔσονται οἱ δύο εἰς σάρκα μίαν
and the two shall become one flesh."
actionresult
τὸ μυστήριον τοῦτο μέγα ἐστίν
This mystery is profound,
ἐγὼ δὲ λέγω εἰς Χριστὸν καὶ εἰς τὴν ἐκκλησίαν
and I am saying that it refers to Christ and the church.

and let the wife see that she fear her husband.
