Jesus Has A Wife
Alright, take a few deep breaths and hear me out. I have two purposes for this post.
1.) I'm going to debunk some of the popular level ideas surrounding God and marriage.
2.) Prove that Jesus has a wife and the Bible even says so.
Asherah. Does her name sound familiar? Well, there is archaeological evidence that she was worshiped as a goddess (or a cultic object) and had a widespread influence in the 8th and 9th centuries. The Bible even mentions her, you wouldn't know that if you got your information from some special on TV about uncovering the Bible's mysteries. The Bible actually mentions Asherah in several places and associates her with the false god baal. (Judges 6:26, 1 Kings 15:13)
The Bible indicates that they were in Samaria (2 Kings 13:6) which is exactly where archaeologists found the remnants of Asherah worship. So the narrative that the Bible was trying to hide it is false.
Gnostics, Forgeries, and Da Vinci, Oh my!
Another common myth from the matchmakers of the divine is that Jesus married Mary Magdalene.
Ever since the Da Vinci Code book by Dan Brown came out, this has become a popular level objection you might see on the internet as a supposed argument against Jesus' divinity. First, I would like to point out that Jesus getting married would not pose a theological problem in and of itself see he was truly human, however, there is no good evidence to suggest he did and in fact there is evidence that he didn't.
It would make sense if the apostle Paul brought up Christ's example in 1 Corinthians 7 or Ephesians 5, since the impeccable God-man would have been the perfect husband. The same goes for Paul arguing that the disciples could take wives. If Jesus had one, why wouldn't Paul use him as an example and instead use his brothers and Peter? 1 Corinthians 9:5 (ESV)
Do we not have the right to take along a believing wife, as do the other apostles and the brothers of the Lord and Cephas?
Jesus talks about people committed to the kingdom of God who had made themselves Eunuchs, (Matthew 19:12) which would point out that like the Essenes of Qumran, celibacy was recognized. Jesus came to Earth with a mission (Matthew 1:21, Acts 4:27-28) and him getting married would probably get in the way with that mission.
Roman Catholic Scholar Raymond Brown pointed out the world's dating obsession of someone they aren't even interested in
“It is an embarrassing insight into human nature that the more fantastic the scenario, the more sensational is the promotion it receives and the more intense the faddish interest it attracts....“People who would never bother reading a responsible analysis of the traditions about how Jesus was crucified, died, was buried, and rose from the dead are fascinated by the report of some ‘new insight’ to the effect he was not crucified or did not die, especially if his subsequent career involved running off with Mary Magdalene to India.”
Most of these claims of Jesus's supposed marriage are no earlier than the 4th century(The Gospel of Mary), yet Clement of Alexandria (circa A.D. 180) wrote clearly against the false teachers who were trying to say marriage was the same as sexual immorality,"Jesus did not marry." (Stromata 3:6:49).
Jesus Has A Wife
The Bible speaks of Jesus's wife.
Let us be glad and rejoice, and give honour to him: for the marriage of the Lamb is come, and his wife hath made herself ready. This is a great mystery: but I speak concerning Christ and the church. (Ephesians 5:31-32 KJV)
