Jesus wasn't married at Cana. The scripture quote is clear that he and the disciples were INVITED to the wedding. So it wasn't his wedding. If he had been married, the gospels would have said so. (I'm sure those who subscribe to the 'jesus married mary magdellen' notion will disagree).

Often an anachronism within the gospels provides a clue to the true authorship of the text. For example, all three synoptic gospels have Jesus use the phrase ‘take up his cross’. This is Mark:
"And when he had called the people unto him with his disciples also, he said unto them, Whosoever will come after me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross, and follow me." (Mark 8.34)
Matthew (16.4) and Luke (9.23) use almost identical words.
What’s ‘wrong’ here is that the crucifixion has not yet happened – the phrase belongs to a Christian Church a century or more into the future!

We should also make not that during the construction of the New Testament there were over 200 hundred canons being looked over and held for possible selection for entry to the New Testament. However, after the construction of the New Testament the rest of the canons were burned.
Also to make note; the book of John was not written by John. He was already long deceased.
The Holy Bible may not be all that reputable as thought to be when you conduct a thorough analytical analysis on its authors and descriptions. Majority true, but it has been revised and rewritten numerous times over time and time again.
The Talmud of Jmmanuel discovered by a greek orthodox priest and translated from aramaic into german before being murdered along with his entire family, paints an entirely different picture of jesus - real name Jmmanuel.
Any child that Jesus would have been father to would have been immortal......
Utnapisjtim, My apologies for any off topic posts. I will not engage in any discussion other than the topic at hand. Thanks, for the thread.
It's possible but I also think that they were 'Invited' to this wedding. I am a believer that Jesus possibly married Mary. Although, there again, the evidence isn't totally solid.
The best proof or clue I see, as to whether Jesus was married, is the fact that it isn't mentioned anywhere in the texts that he wasn't. Had he been unmarried it would have been outrageous having the contact he had with Rosemary and the other women who followed him around.edit on 28-12-2013 by Utnapisjtim because: Syntax errors
