The mainstream media is now promoting the theory that Jesus may have been married based on the discovery of some ancient artifacts which supposedly claim that Jesus when speaking to his disciples said ‘ “my wife”. But does this statement prove conclusively that Jesus had a wife or was married to a woman?

 

Which would also seem to suggest that he “Jesus” may have been involved in sexual relations with this supposed wife.But is this true was Jesus married? The truth of the matter is… absolutely not.

 

Jesus was not married and when you understand scripture you understand the context in which Christ was speaking to his disciples, and specifically who and what he was talking about.

 

Christ has always referred to his disciples, his church, as his “spiritual bride or future wife”, a bride/wife that he will be married to when he returns to establish his government here on earth.

 

Christ was not married to a physical wife, Christ was simply referring to his disciples as his future spiritual bride or wife, if in fact the artifact is actually authentic, notice.


 

Matthew 9:14-16

King James Version (KJV)

14 Then came to him the disciples of John, saying, Why do we and the Pharisees fast oft, but thy disciples fast not?

15 And Jesus said unto them, Can the children of the bridechamber mourn, as long as the bridegroom is with them? but the days will come, when the bridegroom shall be taken from them, and then shall they fast.

16 No man putteth a piece of new cloth unto an old garment, for that which is put in to fill it up taketh from the garment, and the rent is made worse.

 

 

Matthew 25:9-11

King James Version (KJV)

But the wise answered, saying, Not so; lest there be not enough for us and you: but go ye rather to them that sell, and buy for yourselves.

10 And while they went to buy, the bridegroom came; and they that were ready went in with him to the marriage: and the door was shut.

11 Afterward came also the other virgins, saying, Lord, Lord, open to us.

 

 

Mark 2:19-21

King James Version (KJV)

19 And Jesus said unto them, Can the children of the bridechamber fast, while the bridegroom is with them? as long as they have the bridegroom with them, they cannot fast.

20 But the days will come, when the bridegroom shall be taken away from them, and then shall they fast in those days.

21 No man also seweth a piece of new cloth on an old garment: else the new piece that filled it up taketh away from the old, and the rent is made worse.

 

 

Luke 5:33-35

King James Version (KJV)

33 And they said unto him, Why do the disciples of John fast often, and make prayers, and likewise the disciples of the Pharisees; but thine eat and drink?

34 And he said unto them, Can ye make the children of the bridechamber fast, while the bridegroom is with them?

35 But the days will come, when the bridegroom shall be taken away from them, and then shall they fast in those days.

 

John 3:29

King James Version (KJV)

29 He that hath the bride is the bridegroom: but the friend of the bridegroom, which standeth and heareth him, rejoiceth greatly because of the bridegroom’s voice: this my joy therefore is fulfilled.

 

 

Revelation 19:7

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.

 

Revelation 21:9

And there came unto me one of the seven angels which had the seven vials full of the seven last plagues, and talked with me, saying, Come hither, I will shew thee the bride, the Lamb’s wife.


So you see if the artifact is actually authentic, Christ was simply referring to his disciples as his future spiritual wife or bride that he will be married to at his second coming.He was not speaking in the context of having a physical or earthly wife, that would simply be contrary and contradictory to scripture and the bible never contradicts itself.
Men simply misinterpret the bible by applying their own personal interpretation to it as opposed to allowing the bible to interpret itself. And this appears to be an effort to subtly try and destroy the credibility of the bible by making biblically contrasting statements.
An obvious case of gross biblical misinterpretation, and or inaccurate assumption, based on words recorded on an ancient artifact taken completely out of context, separate from the bibles true meaning.
