Monday ABC will air “Jesus, Mary and Da Vinci”. The show is about research showing Jesus had a wife. I can’t believe I haven’t heard of this before. There are a lot of strong arguments to support the case that Jesus had a wife.
Here is what I’ve been able to gather so far…
1. No mention in the bible of married or single status, so why is it universally assumed never married?
2. If Jesus was a Rabbi, followers addressed him as Rabbi (he was allowed to read and interpret the scripture); a Rabbi had to have a wife?
3. Jewish law would have mandated that a man Jesus’ age would have to be married.
Anyway….I’m sure just posing the question will get a bunch of bible thumpers up in arms. I just love the controversy ideas like these cause.
