Jesus was a meek yet strong man. According to history his years on Earth were only 33. He was controversial and confrontational relative to the Scribes, Sadducees and Pharisees. Who were these 3 groups that gave Jesus such a hard time?
Scribes, a secret society of educated Jews learned in theology, record keeping, manuscripts and Jewish law.
Sadducees, a Jewish secret society that denied the resurrection of the dead, the existence of spirits, and the obligation of oral tradition. Emphasizing acceptance of the written law alone.
Pharisees, a Jewish secret society distinguished by strict observance of the traditional and written law, and commonly held to have pretentions to superior sanctity. They emphasized strict interpretation and observance of the Mosaic law.
The 3 groups above on occasion questioned Jesus about marriage and divorce (Matt. 19:3-8). Its interesting to note Jesus never married. Although there is a secret society of whom name I'm under penalty not to mention claims Jesus as their bloodline heir. This particular society believes Jesus married Martha and the two bore children. To date there are no historical facts to such a claim.
Jesus's doctrine concerning marriage and divorce was so complicated to the point it marked him for erasure. For instance, Jesus said "But I say unto you, That whosoever looketh on a woman to lust after her hath committed adultery with her already in his heart" (Matt. 5:28).
In America just about ALL married couples have committed adultery in their hearts due to hundreds of sex symbols i.e. Models, Actors, Actresses, Athletes, etc., selling us an image of sexuality in books, magazines and music videos.
Apparently, Jesus didn't believe in divorce (Mark 10:10-12) (Luke 16:18) yet he compromised and agreed with the law of Moses; however, he stated from the beginning of time there was no such thing as divorce. I guess its why Jesus loves his spiritual bride the Church? The Church is an unfaithful lover yet Jesus remains the husband of the Church.
Nevertheless, lets not be confused...Jesus didn't have a physical/earthly wife. An earthly wife would of done nothing but slowed Jesus down and perhaps convinced him not to fulfill his heavenly father's will. The wife of Job told him to curse God and die (Job 2:9), this isn't to bash women, nor support of misogyny. However, if Jesus was in love with a physical/earthly woman her love for him and his love for her could of possibly caused him not to endure the cross. Why die for the sins of the World when one can live for the bliss of his wife?
Jesus was in support of marriage - marriage just wasn't for Jesus. And then there's a great man by the name of the Apostle Paul. The Apostle Paul wrote over half the New Testament, was he married? No! Well, according the various eccentric theologians before his transformation and salvation he was named Saul and was married but his marriage didn't work out. He was also a member of the Pharisees. After Saul's conversion (Acts 9:1-20) he changed his name to Paul and was made an Apostle. He remained an Apostle and follower of Christ for 30 some years and remained unmarried (1 Corinthians 7:8), once again, Paul didn't disagree with marriage; however, marriage wasn't for him.
John the Baptist, Jesus the Messiah and Paul the Apostle were NOT married to physical/earthly women. Marriage is a beautiful institution. Men who have purpose and destiny always struggle within their marriages, thus John, Jesus, and Paul avoided those struggles and sacrificed the lust of their flesh for a higher calling. John the Baptist, Jesus the Messiah and Paul the Apostle didn't have time for marital arguments, menstruation, and sex deprivation (Proverbs 21:19).
The question becomes how did these men relieve themselves? Is it possible for a man to go long periods of time without sex? For me personally the longest I've been without sex is 4 years (no oral, vaginal sex or masturbation). I was in ministerial training so I couldn't fornicate.
However, in the Bible we see a great man named Judah. In fact Jesus is a descendant from the Tribe of Judah. This man Judah had serious problems with prostitution. He often relieved himself by having sex with prostitutes (Genesis 38:15-30) notwithstanding in Biblical times a man could have several wives (Isaiah 4:1). In other words, men of ancient times believed whomever they stuck their penis in became their wives or concubines.
In essence I don't think Jesus would support or promote marriage in its Western form. Marriage in the West (United States of America) has become a business. Over 50% of marriages in the United States end in DIVORCE. Why? Financial pressures and hardships. Its all about time and money, and very seldom do the two go together.
Women in America don't need a man. They make the same amount of money as a man. They're able to pay rent/mortgage without a man. When they feel sexual they use a machine (dildo) to pleasure themselves or have their girlfriend put on strap. Or just have a man for sex and nothing else.
The status of manhood in America is no more. No respect. No honor. Might as well be like John the Baptist, Jesus the Messiah, and Paul the Apostle... The PERFECT Bachelor.
