"Was Jesus Christ married? Did Jesus have a wife?"

Post by Sonshine on Sat Sep 22, 2012 1:26 am

Question: "Was Jesus Christ married? Did Jesus have a wife?"

Answer: The recent discovery and translation of the fourth-century "Jesus' wife papyrus" has reopened the discussion as to whether Jesus had a wife / was married. The "Jesus' wife papyus" says, "Jesus said to them, 'My wife ...'" This discovery is interesting in that it is the first Gnostic writing to explicitly state that Jesus had a wife. While a couple of the Gnostic gospels mention Jesus having a close relationship with Mary Magdalene, none of them specifically state that Jesus was married to her or to anyone else. Ultimately, it does not matter what the "Jesus' wife papyrus" or Gnostic gospels say. They have no authority. They have all been proven to be forgeries invented to create a Gnostic view of Jesus.

If Jesus had been married, the Bible would have told us so, or there would be some unambiguous statement to that fact. Scripture would not be completely silent on such an important issue. The Bible mentions Jesus’ mother, adoptive father, half-brothers, and half-sisters. Why would it neglect to mention the fact that Jesus had a wife? Those who believe/teach that Jesus was married are doing so in an attempt to “humanize” Him, to make Him more ordinary, more like everyone else. People simply do not want to believe that Jesus was God in the flesh (John 1:1, 14; 10:30). So, they invent and believe myths about Jesus being married, having children, and being an ordinary human being.

A secondary question would be, “Could Jesus Christ have been married?” There is nothing sinful about being married. There is nothing sinful about having sexual relations in marriage. So, yes, Jesus could have been married and still be the sinless Lamb of God and Savior of the world. At the same time, there is no biblical reason for Jesus to marry. That is not the point in this debate. Those who believe Jesus was married do not believe that He was sinless, or that He was the Messiah. Getting married and having children is not why God sent Jesus. Mark 10:45 tells us why Jesus came, “For even the Son of Man did not come to be served, but to serve, and to give his life as a ransom for many.”

I saw the news article about this and I agree whole-hardheartedly with your post Sonshine.

I think there is a scholar that is claiming the whole thing is a fake, but it sure got people talking.

I'm sure there are those out there who would like to raise questions about true Christianity, but I we are truly settled in our heart and know what God has done for us, it will take more than some "scholar" with some off the wall claim to shake our faith.

Yes, but, IF Jesus had been married, which for the record, I don't believe he was, but if he had been, would it have changed what he did for us? I don't believe so. The reasons I don't think he was was the same reason Paul never married. He didn't want divided loyalties. He was loyal to the Father and to his calling. One day he will take a bride, the church.
