Does It Matter If Jesus Was Married Or Not?
The issue of whether Jesus had a wife or not is a hot topic of discussion. Depending on who you ask, you could get different answers with corroborating evidence to back up both sides. The latest so-called evidence to provide proof of Jesus’ marital status was a papyrus fragment with writings signifying that Jesus spoke of his wife. Studies done on the fragments found that it was not a fake and so the debate rages on.
Now what if Jesus did have a wife? What could this mean to us Christians? Do we question The Book and its authenticity? Or do we question the ‘evidence’? Does it even matter if he did or didn’t have a spouse? To me, I really couldn’t care less if I found out that he was married. As long as I didn’t find out he was a cheating husband who abused his wife. So why look under rocks to question the life of Jesus? After all, even though he was sent by God in human form, he still technically was not ‘one of us’.
So, would it matter to you if it was proven without a doubt that Jesus was married?
