Jesus never married

Biblical clues that Jesus was never married.

  • The Bible lists ancestors and their descendants. Jesus had no “begats”, or “generations” because He never married or had children. Remember that the Book of Isaiah has not been corrupted. We now have the Dead Sea Scrolls as solid, physical evidence that Isaiah is word for word the same as it was in ancient times.
  • “He was oppressed, and he was afflicted, yet he opened not his mouth: he is brought as a lamb to the slaughter, and as a sheep before her shearers is dumb, so he openeth not his mouth. He was taken from prison and from judgment: and who shall declare his generation? for he was cut off out of the land of the living: for the transgression of my people was he stricken.” Isaiah 53:7-8
  • “The place of the scripture which he read was this, He was led as a sheep to the slaughter; and like a lamb dumb before his shearer, so opened he not his mouth. In his humiliation his judgment was taken away: and who shall declare his generation? for his life is taken from the earth.” Acts 8:32-33
  • “Have we not power to lead about a sister, a wife, as well as other apostles, and as the brethren of the Lord, and Cephas?” 1 Cor 9:5 Paul is speaking about the apostles wives, Jesus’ brothers wives, and Peter’s wife, if Jesus had a wife, or wives, don’t you think he’d mention it?
  • Jesus and his disciples were "called" to the wedding at Cana. The Bridegroom is not a guest at his own wedding. John 2:1-11
  • Jesus was neither the "ruler" of the feast, nor was he the "governor". John 2: 9
  • Jesus is quoted extensively in this story, yet when governor called the Bridegroom to ask why he saved the best wine for last there is no response given from Jesus. John 2: 10
  • Paul gives examples of the other married apostles and mentions Christ’s brother and his wife, but not Christ’s wife. 1 Corinthians 9:5
  • Jesus says, "the Son of man hath not where to lay his head." Matt 8:20  That does not sound like he has a home or a wife, let alone many wives.
  • The Sadducees told Jesus about a woman who had kept the Law of Moses. Her first husband died leaving no children. The Law said that the next brother should raise up seed, etc.…seven brothers later, they wanted to know who she would be married to in Heaven. Jesus said "But they which shall be accounted worthy to obtain that world, and the resurrection from the dead, neither marry, nor are given in marriage:" (Luke20:35, also see Matt22:30, Mark12:25) Only in the Mormon Church is marriage and polygamy, an essential ordinance for the Celestial Kingdom. Jesus did not "need" to be married to "fulfill all righteousness". (He’s not a man. He is God.)
  • At the foot of the Cross stood the three Mary’s. Jesus said to John the Beloved, "Behold thy mother", He told his mother "Woman, behold thy son!”, from that moment on she lived with John. If you were dying on the Cross and you had the presence of mind to provide for your mother’s care, don’t you think your wife/wives, and chlidren would cross your mind? Jesus told no one to look after his wives and children, only His mother. John 20:25-27
  • When Mary Magdalene was addressed by the Resurrected Lord she called him Rabboni, not husband. John 20:16
  •  Jesus was the Bridegroom and the Church is His Bride. "Husbands, love your wives, even as Christ also loved the church, and gave himself for it;" Eph 5:25 Christ and the Church are the pattern we are given for marriage. It is a relationship. If He was married to a woman the apostles would have pointed to their marriage as the example. The Bridegroom is coming. Matt 25:1-13
