Was Yah'shua (Jesus) married? This has been a disputable question sometimes arising against the popular opinions of today. Tradition has formulated an opinion, popular with modern Christians, that Jesus was never married. Objectors to His marriage contend that He was not subject to the same laws, ordinances, or principles which are otherwise imposed on the rest of mankind. Some oppose His marriage by purporting that marriage is sinful in its nature -- that marriage involves a base, animalistic or sensous practice, and that union of the sexes is an evil regardless of the conditions. Thus the popular consensus prohibits Yah'shua (Jesus) from complying with the ancient law and practice of marriage. Christianity today teaches a celibate Christ.
The reasons for believing in the marriage of Yah'shua (Jesus), rather than in celibacy, are more logical, and to a great degree more valid, through the light of prophecy, history and revelation. However, those who make reference to, or boldly assert, that Jesus was married will usually arouse a cry of "blasphemy" from the modern Christian. Despite the popular opinions and the pious modesty of our society, a careful investigation may prove interesting, if not advantageous, to the quest for an answer to this relevant question.
