What does Ephesians 5:23 mean?

John Gill's Exposition of the Bible
Ephesians 5:23

For the husband is the head of the wife
(See Gill on 1 Corinthians 11:3).

Even as Christ is the head of the church;
all the elect; (See Gill on Ephesians 1:22). And he is the Saviour of the body; not "of our body", as the Ethiopic version reads, of that part of man, which is called the body; though that indeed is redeemed and saved by Christ, as well as the soul; but "of his body", as the Vulgate Latin version reads; that is, of the church, which is his body; see ( Ephesians 1:23 ) ; of which he is the Saviour; he provides everything for it, preserves and protects it, and has wrought out salvation for it, which every member of it partakes of.
