Jesus didn't need a wife, whomper. That was not His purpose for being here.

He was about His Father's business. He came in order to die for the sins of all humanity so that we would be forgiven and be in Heaven with Him for eternity. He purchased us with His blood. He paid the ultimate price on Calvary's Cross. He died (the Sacrificial Lamb) so that we might live.

John 3:16 (DR)
For God so loved the world, as to give his only begotten Son; that whosoever believeth in him, may not perish, but may have life everlasting.

Same verse from the KJV

John 3:16
For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believes in him should not perish, but have everlasting life

John 14:6 (DR)
Jesus saith to him: I am the way, and the truth, and the life. No man cometh to the Father, but by me.

Same verse from the KJV

John 14:6
Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.

John 10:10 (DR)
The thief cometh not, but for to steal, and to kill, and to destroy. I am come that they may have life, and may have it more abundantly.

Same verse from the KJV

John 10:10
The thief cometh not, but for to steal, and to kill, and to destroy: I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly.

"Jesus didn't need a wife, whomper. That was not His purpose for being here..."

What a strange religion you follow! Did you make it up?

According to both scripture and theological studies, Jesus became man "to live and die as one of us...". He experienced temptation, if not sin, because otherwise he would have just been God, and not saved a thing.

The idea that Jesus became man, or human, and neglected by accident or something to experience sex and temptation to violate sexual mores is a bit bizarre. He forgot to save us from one sin with many forms just for fun?

I think it's all a bunk, but I'd much sooner trust a "savior" who had experienced all of the human condition than one who never got a woody.

Or, well, you can't answer that one either. How would you know Jesus had or did not have children? And, really, it's considered impossible to prove a negative. It may be your opinion, but a lot of people don't accept opinions valid from people who claim their opinions are fact.

[Is there some reason in particular that you find his writings to be so compelling ?]

Well I believe Cayce was the reincarnation of the great Egyptian god Osiris, Lord Of The Underworld. But it goes deeper than that.

For me Cayce is one of the very few sources of information that I believe about the mysteries of the ancient past. Those mysteries include subjects like Atlantis and Egypt but it also includes the bible and Christ.

There's a few other sources that I believe. But none of those other writers provided the depth of knowledge and detail that the great Edgar Cayce gave us.

The role of the mythological gods and goddesses is to help the human race evolve spiritually and to find the truth, to find God. And this is exactly what Edgar Cayce did. He was more than just a so called prophet of the future. He was a spiritual teacher.

For every Edgar Cayce there are many, many false teachers, false prophets, and liars. Mohammed and Joseph Smith were I believe false prophets. Those two created entire religions and lead people astray.

There are many false prophets around today as well as authors who will write anything to sell books. Helena Blavatsky was one. There's Gregg Braden and Daniel Pinchbeck today. I already mentioned the illustrious Dan Brown with his crackpot book The Da Vinci Code.

"Oh, but I DO know, Jeff. Far better than you could imagine..."

Really, given Jeff's acceptance of Edgar Cayce as a spiritual source, I don't think his imagination has quite the limits you suggest.

Pathfinder says:
It was supposedly tradition for the family of the groom to provide the wine. The wedding feast was provided by the family of the bride. Mary supplied the wine at a wedding. It was also tradition for the eldest to get married first. If Mary was providing the wine then this must have been her son getting married.

When you study the scriptures, the most important message you receive concerns the family and the children. The love that the husband has for his wife, and the love that the wife has for her husband, and the love that the parents have for their children.

The people who interfere with this bond is often condemned. The adulterers, the fornicators, etc.

There was also a commandment was also given for a Bishop to be married: 1 Timothy 3:2

Personally, I believe that Jesus was married, and the bible does not offer any proof to the contrary. On the other hand, a lot of religious theologians do not like to admit that he was. What would be wrong if Jesus got married when he was in his early 20's. Would this have been a sin? Families are forever, and death does not break these bonds.

Personally, I believe that if Jesus was married, and the ministers taught this concept, modern-day Christianity would be taught in a different light. This would bring families to understand that the family was the greatest gift God gave to mankind. The love that exists within the family union continues even after death.

Nothing. But there's just no evidence to support this claim.

People think this would be some great revelation and perhaps even a scandal that would topple Christianity.

I believe Joshua was Christ in another incarnation. Manly Hall also believed this but I don't know where Hall heard it. But anyway Joshua was a vicious, treacherous killer. So we see that Christ, although God incarnate, was still also a human being. Not that Moses was exactly a choir boy either.

If Christ was still married when He was 30 years old and when so much was written about Him that fact would have been captured in the New Testament. But I guess you're saying He was married and His wife died before the age of 30. That's taking the assumptions to another level to make it fit into the time before Christ began His fateful ministry. Your mind is working overtime to try to make your unsubstantiated theory fit into the historical record.

I don't think the people who wrote the bible knew where Christ was before He reached the age of 30. He was I believe in India and Egypt with His cousin John The Baptist studying with various teachers and Christ experienced the Egyptian initiation rites. Although this was a very unusual situation and for Him perhaps study is the wrong word. The Egyptian priests were probably helping Christ prepare psychologically for His terrible fate.

The Egyptian god Thoth, the architect of the Great Pyramid and the great teacher of mathematics and occult sciences, was probably Christ in another form.

When Christ began His ministry at the age of 30 He had reached a very high level of spiritual enlightenment as is indicated by the way He spoke, taught, and acted.

Hi mrs exp,
Luke records that Jesus was about thirty when he began His Ministry. Irenaeus said Jesus was between 30- 50 and John claimed He was 50 (See Ad Her. II:22:5) but in Hebrew culture a man would have been married at some point prior to being referred to as Rav or Rabbi (Teacher). Jesus was special, so who knows if customary exceptions were made in this regard for Him..
I have heard it said multiple times by 'experts' that if Jesus were married, his wife would have been Mara Magdalena. I don't believe this would have been true however, or His Ap's wouldn't have been jealous of her on the account of intimacy and His having been seen to kiss her. Had she had been His wife-that would not have been behaviour worthy of mention. The papyrii is of interest in that at least these ancients were relaying that Jesus had a wife at some point in life.

In reply to an earlier post on Sep 27, 2012 9:42:08 PM PDT
Whether He was 33 or 50 at the time of His death, this would have been an old age in those days and for that region. My point was that He could have even become a widower prior the inception of His Ministry. He probably did live a normal life for a Jewish man of those days as only His Birth and Infant travel is recorded as remarkable in His early life.

If gay marriage was allowed back then, He could have married the especially loved disciple....

In reply to an earlier post on Sep 27, 2012 9:45:04 PM PDT
To His last three yrs preceeding His death maybe.

In reply to an earlier post on Sep 27, 2012 9:46:15 PM PDT
And you would know this how?

What would He have had to do with His Morals and obedience to God's Commands??
