I heard about that on the news this morning! I think it makes more sense for the time when he lived that he was married, but I am sure there will be a surge of people rushing forward to discredit it. I guess the debate will rage on!
Some time ago, I saw a program featuring a preeminent scholar of ancient Jewish life and customs. It is held that an unmarried man would not be accepted within the context of Jewish life and customs of the period. No scripture was faxed down directly from above. Even if it was, human nature would choose to direct the spin.You've tossed the hot potato, Angus.
Being open to new ways of thinking is very hard for many people. I am looking forward to the discussion that will follow...B&L,Janelle, Maggie Mae and Max
Lots of chatter over here about this. For the life of me, I don't understand the big deal. If he was as much human as God, why wouldn't he have married?
Should provide food for much thought and possibly some intelligent discussion. Or not. An added bonus is that a sidebar to the cited article has a link to a Gail Collins column, always excellent reading.
