Both Matthew and Luke tell us that Jesus had no home and there is nothing to suggest that He had a wife tagging about with Him.
This is clear to me that Jesus was not a married man. Also consider that He was not a member of the Sanhedrin, seventy rabbis of Jerusalem, and therefore not subject to the doctrines of the temple authority. Even though He was subject to Torah, the fact that Jesus' doctrine was far different than that of the temple Sanhedrin was the basis of the charges against Him.
Then consider Saul of Tarsus (Paul) who sat under the tutoring of the great Gamaliel. Gamaliel was a member of the Sanhedrin and was licensed to have a school of selected pupils and was also the president of the Sanhedrin at that time in Saul's life. In fact Saul was believed to be next in line for presidency of the Sanhedrin. Why does all this matter? Simply because Saul, the rabbi, was not married either.
Now when you compare a rabbi of modern day with a rabbi of ancient days you must consider exactly what the difference is. In Jesus' day they had Sadducee rabbi's and Pharisee rabbi's who controlled the authority of the Jerusalem temple. Between these two factions the Sadducee doctrine was that there was no afterlife such as the Pharisee claimed. Today you have three mainstream factions of Judaism which are the Orthodox, Conservative and the Reformative divisions. You will find vast differences between all three today just as you find vast differences in Jesus' day. By this I believe Jesus was never married and was far above any need for sex.
No where is scripture does it claim Jesus Christ was unmarried.
Text That's not to say the Jesus never had a home or that he wasn't welcome to "come home" at any time. The Bible doesn't mention Jonah carting a wife around either. Neither does it mention Ezekiel's wife, Isaiah's wife, Jeremiah's wife, Were all prophets bachelors? I don't think so.
Just to be clear, I personally don't believe that Jesus of Nazareth was a married man. I think that he was an Essene master.
Again, I will ask, if He in fact was married, what exactly would that add or subtract from the body of His message? Why would one find it necessary to hide this information?
because they said he never took a wife.
He did have offers though, which he declined because of his work.

Why I Don't Except The Story Of Jesus.
Point one - You mean to tell me earth is the Centre of the universe. 7 Billion Asians, Africans, Cocasions and other races of people evolved from Adam and Eve and did not currupt the gene pool from a mass of in breeding?
Point two - so you mean to tell me god made earth in 7 days and that we are the only intelligent species through out a Google plex of universes.
Point three - so you mean to tell me that if I don't believe in Jesus and give my time and money to the church in the name of God to listen to a priest tell me lies about the past and brainwash me with brainwashing religious propagenda that I will not go into a place somewhere in the clouds on earth were the suppose creater of the whole entire Google plex of universes lives. And instead I will go to a place in the Centre of the earth to be poked with a cattle prod and tortured even long long after the extinction of our universe.
Is the human race really this gullible?
