    So it turns out this "Maybe Jesus was married after all" story was a complete and utter hoax after all, just as I said at the time.

    Yes, Suzi. It was a "hoax" without authority: perpetrated to promote the false Gnostic view of the Son of God, Jesus Christ.

    Question: "Was Jesus Christ married? Did Jesus have a wife?"

    "Answer:
    The recent discovery and translation of the fourth-century "Jesus' wife papyrus" has reopened the discussion as to whether Jesus had a wife / was married. The "Jesus' wife papyus" says, "Jesus said to them, 'My wife ...'" This discovery is interesting in that it is the first Gnostic writing to explicitly state that Jesus had a wife. While a couple of the Gnostic gospels mention Jesus having a close relationship with Mary Magdalene, none of them specifically state that Jesus was married to her or to anyone else. Ultimately, it does not matter what the "Jesus' wife papyrus" or Gnostic gospels say. They have no authority. They have all been proven to be forgeries invented to create a Gnostic view of Jesus.

    If Jesus had been married, the Bible would have told us so, or there would be some unambiguous statement to that fact. Scripture would not be completely silent on such an important issue. The Bible mentions Jesus’ mother, adoptive father, half-brothers, and half-sisters. Why would it neglect to mention the fact that Jesus had a wife? Those who believe/teach that Jesus was married are doing so in an attempt to “humanize” Him, to make Him more ordinary, more like everyone else. People simply do not want to believe that Jesus was God in the flesh (John 1:1, 14; 10:30). So, they invent and believe myths about Jesus being married, having children, and being an ordinary human being.

    A secondary question would be, “Could Jesus Christ have been married?” There is nothing sinful about being married. There is nothing sinful about having sexual relations in marriage. So, yes, Jesus could have been married and still be the sinless Lamb of God and Savior of the world. At the same time, there is no biblical reason for Jesus to marry. That is not the point in this debate. Those who believe Jesus was married do not believe that He was sinless, or that He was the Messiah. Getting married and having children is not why God sent Jesus. Mark 10:45 tells us why Jesus came, “For even the Son of Man did not come to be served, but to serve, and to give his life as a ransom for many.”

    Do you want to learn about the true "wife" of Jesus? If so, please read our article on "What does it mean that the church is the bride of Christ?" http://www.gotquestions.org/was-Jesus-married.html

    Surely it would have been very odd for a man of Jesus's age not to be married in those days?

    Yes, I'm sure. The Son of God, Jesus Christ, in hypostatic union [perfect humanity and undiminished deity in one person forever] on earth during the First Advent [appearance] was unique. There is no point of comparison: an awesome reality.

    Isn't the fact that he was a carpenter and earned a living from carpentry, for example, a "point of comparison" with other craftsmen and other ordinary people making their livelihoods? To me, it seems rather incoherent to BOTH celebrate the fact that he was a real human and THEN cancel all that out by insisting that "there is no point of comparison". OK, fine, if "there is no point of comparison" with other humans then what is the big deal about him being a human?

    The truth always wins out in the end.
