A Christ Filled Life – Getting To Know Jesus
There is new speculation on the Internet that Jesus was married. Apparently there is “The Gospel of Jesus’s Wife”. I have included part of the article, hoping to quiet any concerns that this might be real. First the scriptures that I believe address the misconception that our Lord and Saviour married Mary Magdalene or anyone for that matter other than His Church.
Revelation 19:6) And I heard as it were the voice of a great multitude, and as the voice of many waters, as the voice of mighty thundering’s, saying Alleluia: for the Lord God Omnipotent reigneth. 7) Let us be glad and rejoice, and give honour to Him: for the marriage of the LAMB is come, and His Wife hath made herself ready. 2Corinthians 11;2; Ephesians 5:32. 8) And to her was granted that she should be arrayed in fine linen, clean and white (or bright): for the fine linen is the righteousness of Saints. Psalm 132:9. 9) And He saith unto me, Write, Blessed are they which are called unto the marriage supper of the LAMB. And He saith unto me, These are the true sayings of God. Luke 14;15. Quest Study Bible – v7, Who is the bride of the Lamb? The Church of Christ, the people of God. The bride is a frequent Biblical picture for God’s people. Ancient Jewish customs called for the groom to go to his fiancée’s house, and take her to his house to be his bride. The wedding would then be followed by festive celebrations. The early Church saw this as a vivid image of the relationship we have with Christ. We are cleansed from sin (v8), and therefore can expect Him to come and take us to His Home where we will celebrate. Matthew 25:1-13; Ephesians 5:25-27.
New findings suggest ‘Gospel of Jesus’s Wife’ isn’t a modern forgery. Analysis finds papyrus is ancient, but some remain skeptical. The fragment measures 1.5 by 3 inches. Its author is unknown. Yahoo –
