Can We Believe Jesus Was Married

I wonder why it is such a big deal to know that Jesus was perhaps married. Does it change who He was?

You mean "is" not "was". Read what the prophet Hosea said. (chapters 1-3)

The Son of man is married. For more info the believers information network can be helpfull.

If you believe that Jesus is married to you, personally (rather than the whole Church collectively), it would imply that you believe that he is married to all other believing Christians, all at the same time.

Does that mean you support polygamy?
---StrongAxe on 12/11/07

Yahushua being married would mean that He would have had to love one woman more than anyone else. He would have had to forsake all others for her and He would have been inclined to place her needs and happiness above everyone else's. Would this have changed who He was while on earth? I'd venture to say it would indeed.
---AlwaysOn on 12/11/07

this is one of the charges of the Pharisees--As I recall they Falsely Accused Jesus. Need I say more?John records that Christ is the Word.John wrote what the Spirit of God inspired him to write.This was not John's words,but the words of God,i.e-Jesus.I have continued to watch people in here give opinions without scriptural evidence,yet this is the first time I have seen this from you,or anyone else for that matter.I am ready to offer scriptural evidence on everything I state in here or I will not reply.

Yes, it would change who He was. And no, He was nor never has been married. He is God, and was God, still is God, for goodness sakes. Stop your blasphemies. Besides, He is married to me.

I don't believe in the Da Vinci Code and I do not believe Jesus Christ was ever married.
---Michelle on 12/10/07

Since there is no marriage of man and women in heaven....and the Bible does not mention once that Jesus was married...Then it is only logical to say Jesus was not married.
Plus His sole purpose was to die for our sins and give us eternal life.
getting married would have been a waste of time for Him.
---lisa on 12/10/07

I feel that whether or not Jesus was married is of little or no importance and would/should have no effect on who he was or on what did for us. He is and still would be our savior and Lord,and nothing can change that! For me it does not affect my faith one iota!

"His disciples said to him, If the result of a man with a wife is so, it easier not to be married. At that he said to them, Not all take this word, but to whom it is given. For there solitaries, which thus born from the mothers womb, and there singles, that made by mankind, and there singles, that have abstained themself for the realm of heaven: he that may take, take he." Matthew 19:10-12
---Eloy on 12/10/07

Paul speaking of virgins, says, "But I would have you without concern. He that is unmarried cares for the things that belong to the Lord, how he may please the Lord: But he that is married cares for the things that are of the world, how he may please wife. Then said Jesus to the teachers and Ministers, And he that sent me is with me: the Father has not left me alone, for I do always those things that please him." I Corinthians 7:25,32,33+ John 8:3,29.
---Eloy on 12/10/07

**Jesus did not study O.T. writings,**

As I recall, this is one of the charges of the Pharisees--that He was unlettered and unnlearned in the Scriptures.

**Jesus said, I am the word,the bread of life.**

Please give book, chapter, and verse where Jesus said, "I am the word," or elese retract your false and inaccurate statement.
---Jack on 12/9/07

God made woman to be a helpermate for man and to bear him company: thus Jesus made woman for man, not for himself. Jesus Christ is the single most renowned and greatest person in the entire world, and therefore if Jesus would have taken a woman in marriage and sired children, then most certainly they would have been named.
---Eloy on 12/10/07

In the old testament the Lord Jesus says, "I YHWH: that my name: and my glory will I not give to another, neither my praise to graven images. I YHWH, and none else, no God besides me, I girded you, though you have not known me." Isaiah 42:8+ 45:5. No, there is no queen in heaven and there never was and there never will be, that is idolatry. Please Read- Jeremiah 44:7-30.
---Eloy on 12/10/07

I think the idea of a married Savior is inspiring and beautiful!
That being said I can think of reasons why it might seem blasphemous to some people. Mostly that marriage is a sacred bond between two people, and Christ loves *all* humankind. So it's possible that being married would somehow distract him from his first love, the Church. Personally though I believe that Christ's love is limitless, so if I learned that he did have a wife that wouldn't bother me at all. She'd be a lucky woman!
---Sarah on 12/9/07

In order for Jesus to fulfill the "whole law," he would have had to be married, since one of the 613 precepts of the Torah is, Be fruitful and multiply and fill the earth. So he had children too.

Jesus Christ is God in all His deity, yet in all His humanity. Jesus Christ was not married, He came down from the throne of Heaven to seek and to save sinners. He came down from Heaven to rescue our souls. He was the God-man. And He is comming at any moment to gather His Church together for eternity. God Bless!

Let's think about why the world wants to think Jesus, who was God in the flesh, was married. To find that answer, you need to look at what damage they could do by making him married. They want deperately to bring Jesus to thier level of worldy. Jesus did come to our level, but as an individual. His family, he made very clear was not even His own earthly mother. His family was believers. Just a thought.
---Tony on 12/9/07

In one sense the bride of Christ is the church, but that is not to be mistaken to be synonymous with an earthly marriage. No, that is the imagination of man, for I have read the Bible through many times and I also translate the Scriptures, and the Scriptures do not reveal that Jesus took the hand of any woman into the marriage bed.

Strong Axe, What do you think the Bible MEANS when it states that Peter had a "mother-in-law"? That he had been married! If the Bible makes NO statement whatsoever that YAHUSHUA was ever married then we can all KNOW that He was not married. Probably for the practical reason that He came to DIE as a Sacrificial Lamb for the Atonement of "whosoever will". He was not planning to "stick around" long enough to commit to a woman in marriage and raise children. He was the Messiah.
---Gordon on 12/8/07

StrongAxe, Helen5378 is correct! To say that YAHUSHUA (Jesus Christ) was married IS Blasphemy. But, after all, we ARE in the Laodicean church age so this kind of heresy should not come as a surprise. GO, Helen! :-)
---Gordon on 12/8/07

gnostic lies..Da Vinci Code blasphemy
---lisa on 12/8/07

I think it'd be sad for Jesus to have had a human body (and with it human needs and emotions) and not have had a helpmeet. If anyone needed one, it was He.

But had He a wife, I doubt He'd have begat children, as He knew what was to come. (Leaving behind an understanding widow is one thing, leaving behind orphans quite another.)

And folks, the thing about the Church being Christ's bride is an ALLEGORY. Because if it isn't...can we all say, EWWW?

Why was it Jesus was never married???He came not for a family,but to be the Sacrifice for mankind.That was his Only objective and purpose.He stated it many times-I come to do the will of my Father.It is not the ? of if he was married,but rather why would anyone think he was? Let us not forget why he came to Earth?The Cross,and nothing More or nothing less.End of the conversation as far as I am concerned.
---Tommy on 12/7/07

The word says that he that is joined unto the Lord is one Spirit.
In the natural if Jesus was married he could not have been a Lamb without spot as the joining with flesh and blood would have defiled him.
Not one, per say, with a corruptible and weaker vessel of flesh and blood.
He had to remain pure and holy.
It is a very blasphemous issue they are pushing.
---Frank on 12/7/07

those who belive that He was married are atheists or non beliver and taking the mickey out of the bible..I feel for them at the last day
---pammy on 12/7/07


Jesus was both God and man - so he was able to do things that were possible to men, but not applicable to God.

God is not born, grow up, and die. But men do.
God does not breathe, eat, drink, and sleep, but men do.
God does not get married, bear and raise children, but men do.

The whole reason for the incarnation is to allow God to be "on the same level" as men.

it is wrong to believe Jesus was married because HE wasn't.If He had been married HE would have told us.HE told us everything else about Himself.Why would HE leave that out?
---shirley on 12/7/07

I don't see that it is blasphemous to think that Jesus could have been married. It don't think it would have made Him less God, and it would not have affected His Mission here.
But I do not think that He was married ... it would have been relevant to his pattern of life, and it would surely have been mentioned somewhere in the Gospels. Other women important to Him were mentioned, surely his wife would have been? important?
---alan_of_UK on 12/7/07


Why is the very "idea" that Jesus was married blasphemy? The bible makes no mention of him being married. It also makes no specific mention of him NOT being married.

It makes no mention of Peter being married either (except once it mentions his mother-in-law). The Bible does not mention women (mothers, wives, sisters) unless they are important to the story being told.

(I don't believe he was married, just saying that the idea isn't "blasphemous").

What did Jesus tell us he was here for?
John 6:38 "For I came down from heaven, not to do mine own will, but the will of him that sent me."
So if he is only doing God's will we know he did not marry. Why?
1 Corinthians 7:32-33 "But I would have you without carefulness. He that is unmarried careth for the things that belong to the Lord, how he may please the Lord: But he that is married careth for the things that are of the world, how he may please his wife."

So you won't have to ask me: I was merely using two different names because 1) I wanted to keep track of all I wrote, and the 'recent entries' were too small to keep up with, 2) I often used the two to divide between topics in my mind to categorize what I was writing about, 3) Always used the membername whenever I asked or hoped someone might write to me and 4) Daniel was more personal than 'anon.' when I wanted to be anonymous to a certain degree (but don't care now).

The problem is so many are trying to make the bible makes sense to their natural mind. WE must be transformed by the renewing of our minds and this requires an intimate relationship with Christ. Once you have that, you will begin to understand why we are the Bride of Christ and how the culmination of the Marriage upon his return will play out. He truly has gone to perepare a place for His bride ( the church) where we will be together forever. Don't you want to go?

First, we (the church) are the bride of Christ. The entire bible is written onthe premise of reconciling a relationship that was lost with the first Adam. The first Adam had a wife and her name was Eve. The second Adam (the spiritual version) - Jesus will have a wife/bride which is the Church. That is why we are one body many members, but we will all be changed when he returns.

No one is saying sex is wrong for married couples. But would sex or marriage have been appriopriate for Jesus? Absolutely not! Sex is a carnal thing that will not exist in heaven. So it is not as sanctified as you make it out to be, Grace and others. Jesus never had a home of His own, never had sex, never married or had children... such things could not fit into the nature of His calling: God come downas man to lay his life for our sins.
---Okebaram on 5/20/06

Jesus came to earth with the soul purpose of doing the Father's will. He was single minded and had a purpose of heart to fulfill His Father's will for the time He was on earth. If He would have married, He would have had a responsibility to another besides His Father.

The reason why Christians cannot choose to believe the DaVinci Code is because it goes against everything the Word of God tells us. It is ridiculous speculation. There is no way Jesus could have survived being crucified because the Romans designed it to make SURE it caused death. Jesus life and death were prophesied by Isaiah, Jeremiah, and King David hundreds of years before Jesus walked the earth. Don't read the Davinci Code, read your Bible!

Grace and Daniel ... you are very muddled. There is nothing sinful to marriage, and had Jesus been married, it would not reduce His sinlessness, nor the work He did as our Saviour, But it would have been an important anbd significent part of His life and would have been recorded, paricularly if it was one of the women who followed Him and was there at the Crucifixion.

He had no beauty or majesty to attract us to him,

Show me scripture please. Show me in the Bible where it says that Jesus was NOT married. In the days of Christ it was unacceptable for a Jew to be unmarried and men who were not wed were not respected. I think we all know that Jesus was respected by all, leading up to his crucifiction. And "woman" when translated from aramaic is the same as "wife". So scholars had to decifer which was which according to the context.

Moderator.....I'm sorry, but my aim was not to start any doctrine, let alone a false one! What does a doctrine have to do with being married? Being married or not is a fact. It does not change ones spiritual direction or essence, as a doctrine might. And the Bible is not clear either way. So, this would lead me to think that either way is acceptable; to be married, or not. Why would it be bad for Jesus to be married? Where does the concern stem from?

Moderator - The concern is it is a false statement. How would you like someone to tell lies about you? Do you think Jesus would approve of false statements?
