I think it more appropriate that the ones who have created an entire religion based on this, where the priesthood is required to be celibate because
of Jesus alleged celibacy, provide evidence of their claims than a quickly written "Ha! I knew it!" type of comment on a conspiracy forum, no?
I challenge you to find any evidence of Jesus celibacy though.
Well, I've read Dan Brown's works a few years back, but nothing in the books can be trusted really. We all know this. No, I based it on a much more
reliable source of course.. a random guy on the internet
. The thing about the 'companion' may be utter horse#, and I'm not gonna become a
scholar just to find out... nevertheless I still stand by the rest of my comment though. To me, it is common sense. Jesus may have been a man of great
spiritual prowess, but he was not god.
FYI I based my comment on the following:
The phrase ‘my wife’ challenges the settled portrayal of Mary Magdalene as a whore and the Christian concept of abstinence. It casts doubt “on
the whole Catholic claim of a celibate priesthood based on Jesus’ celibacy,” King told Smithsonian Magazine.
"Christian tradition has long held that Jesus was not married, even though no reliable historical evidence exists to support that claim," King said at
a conference in Rome on Tuesday.
"One cannot overrule that it might be him saying 'my wife as a church,' but in the context where he's talking about 'my mother' and 'my wife' and
talking about 'my disciple,' the one thing you would not say is that the church would be 'my disciple'," she says.
In the text, Jesus appears to be defending her against some criticism, saying 'she will be my disciple'. Two lines later he then tells the disciples:
'I dwell with her.'
If genuine, the document casts doubt on a centuries old official representation of Magdalene as a repentant whore and overturns the Christian ideal of
The Nicea cree (325 AD) and similar meetings before that decided the doctrine of the christian faith. After the doctrine was decided whenever
conflicting material surfaced it would have been called "heresy" and burned, especially during medieval times. The church was a powerful tool to
control the people (and still is to an extent), conflicting evidence would have challenged core beliefs and bring the structure of control down. I'm
sure they told themselves it is "for the greater good".
After over a thousand years of such dark times until the renaissance not much such material would have survived, and the rest would be securely locked
up inside the papal archives. And no I will not provide a source for all this, this is pure logic based on history. Either you'll believe me, do your
own research, or you don't.
