Except that there is no indication, whatsoever, that Jesus was married. He asks John to take care of his mother when he is dying on the cross, don't
you think that he'd have made similar arrangements for his wife? And if the church "scrubbed the Gospels" to remove statements that Jesus was married,
why didn't they similarly remove references to Peter's being married, as he was the founder of the church?
You make some good points, and I will re-iterate that I am not "sold" on the idea of Him being married. I just wouldn't be shocked, and... well let's
say I'd be pleasantly surprised. Why? Because it would be one more way He lived the 'human condition' with perfection. (And to all of us married
folks, quite a miracle to do THAT one flawlessly.)
There are a few things others have mentioned (like the wedding wine situation, and anointing oil) that lend themselves towards Him marrying.... but
admittedly, these are only corroborating evidence.
So who knows? I don't think you or I can convince one another away from our own opinions, but I enjoyed the respectful, enlightening debate just the
same. Good day sir...
