Only when you love someone, can you truly be impregnated by them. If not no defense system truly allows entry of anything foreign.
It is still true that the spirit, or soul, is what impregnates. Not the other way around. The soul is the masculine principle.
the LORD God formed the man from the dust of the ground and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life, and the man became a living
Genesis is a metaphor of that principle. The spiritual is expressed and active through the physical which is passive, receptive, responsive and
Jesus could not have been referring to his "soul" as his wife. That just doesn't work.
That being said, I have no problem with Jesus having been married. However, a short statement doesn't prove it either. For all we know, Jesus was
relating a story in the third person, as if a person was speaking of "his wife."
For example Jesus may have been quoting a man who asked "What of my wife?" When he was asked to give up everything and follow him.
