    Does it matter whether Jesus was married or not?  Why?

    A Harvard professor states she has discovered an original writing that says Jesus said, "my wife".

    As a devout Christian, it wouldn't matter because it would NOT change Jesus's message at all. 

    Conversely, it would matter because it would be evidence that the 'Church' has hidden this piece of information for centuries. 

    Jesus spoke very highly of the institution of marriage, and family meant a great deal to Him.  If He was married, I would think He'd have held Himself and His own marriage as the ultimate ideal.  IF, indeed, that piece of information has been hidden by 'Church' leaders, then WHY?

      Thanks for your reply.  I believe if he was married he would have only demonstrated appropriate relationship behavior.  His role on earth was to teach us how to live on earth, so why would there even be a problem if he was married?

    I am more apt to believe the Bible than any so-called "original writing". Since the Bible does not mention a marriage, nor does Christ mention having a wife, I say line the trash can with the "writing" and dig into the Bible.

    Technically, it shouldn't matter.  However, it doesn't make sense that He would marry.  Why should He, knowing He was going to die an early death and leave His wife and children behind?
