Once again the bogus assertion that Jesus was married and fathered children has been raised, this time by, not because the writer believes it to be true, but to try to tell us why, if true, it doesn't really matter. The author goes on to repeat that, if Jesus were a husband and father, he would have been a good one. When you speculate the "what ifs" that stem from a lie, you still have a lie, and a bunch of lies! It makes no difference "what if;" the assertion itself is fallacious.

The author recounts the story of how, in 2012, "when an eminent Harvard University scholar and historian of early Christianity named Karen L. King presented at a conference in Rome a scrap of papyrus. The postage stamp-size relic was said to be 1,300 years old and bore the words, in the ancient Coptic language, 'Jesus said to them, My wife.' The fragment came from an anonymous collector," (as reported in the Chicago Tribune).

This "postage-stamp sized relic" has been called by some, "The Gospel of Jesus' Wife." We're talking about six words on a scrap of papyrus that was purportedly written some 600 years after the last of the canonical Gospels. The scrap and the words are completely free of any context, and offer no real evidence of anything. But humans love to find "evidence" to prove their preconceived notions rather than trusting the Word of God. Proponents of the idea have latched on to the totally fictional idea that Jesus was married to Mary Magdalene and had children with her. (This fiction is told in the book "The Davinci Code," and must I remind you, that book is entirely a work of fiction!

The Bible Study Tools article doesn't even address the obvious error of claiming a new gospel; the author just tries to tell us why, if true, it's no reason for alarm. That is Satan's way, my friend, to try to cause us to believe a lie by appealing to our emotions through a gentle softening of the facts. He is quite sly. So be careful what you believe!

If Jesus had been married, would God not have told us about it in His Word? He didn't, because it didn't happen. I suggest to you that the Son of God would not have taken a human wife, because that was not His mission. Throughout the Bible, the mission of Jesus was "to seek and to save that which was lost" (Luke 19:10) and "because I do not seek My own will but the will of the Father who sent Me" (John 5:30).

Here is the focus of God's will--the focus for which Jesus gave His life: "The Lord is not slack concerning His promise, as some count slackness, but is longsuffering toward us, not willing that any should perish but that all should come to repentance." (2 Peter 3:9)

"The truth shall make you free" is a very popular quote, usually taken out of context. In context, it reads like this:

Then Jesus said to those Jews who believed Him, “If you abide in My word, you are My disciples indeed. 32 And you shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free.” (John 8:31-32)

IF you abide (continue to believe) in His Word (the Holy Bible), THEN you are really His disciples. And ONLY THEN will you know the truth that will set you free.

Steer clear of the Devil's lies.
