Was St Peter still married? His wife was never mentioned. His mother in law was. I like to think she was dead. If not then Jesus told him to leave everything he had and follow him. I will believe Jesus would not tell him to leave his wife.
You would like to think she was dead but here she is. I found her.

1Co 9:5 Do we not have the right to take along a believing wife, as do the other apostles and the brothers of the Lord and Cephas?

So you are saying all of the Apostles were married?

We know women traveled with Jesus and apostles took care of them.

In this passage Paul defends himself and the other apostles against charges from a few disgruntled people. He says he is giving "my defense to those who would examine me" (1 Cor. 9:3). He talks about a situation that applies to himself, not just to the others, yet he certainly was not accompanied by his wife, since he had no wife. We know from other testimony of his that he was unmarried. He does not speak of a theoretical marriage, one that he might someday have but does not yet have. He responds to complaints concerning whichever women actually did accompany him and his male companions. This indicates to me that "wife" is not the right translation here.

The key Greek words in 1 Corinthians 9:5 are "adelphaen gunaika." The first means "sister," and the second can be translated as either "woman" or "wife." This means the phrase translates as "sister woman" or "sister wife," with "sister" indicating not a biological but a spiritual relationship. It would make sense for the apostles to be accompanied by "sister women" who could assist them in ministering to women—for example, at full-immersion baptisms, where a question of modesty could arise, or in cases where it would be more appropriate for a woman to perform a charitable or catechetical function.

This finds support in the Fathers. "Sister woman" is found in Jerome’s Vulgate, and Jerome wrote that "It is clear that [they] must not be seen as wives but, as we have said, as women who assisted [the apostles] with their goods" (Ad. Jovinian I, 26). Clement of Alexandria agreed, saying the women were not the wives of the apostles but were female assistants who could enter the homes of women and could teach them there (Stromata III, 6).

In short, I think Peter was a widower at the time his mother-in-law was healed.

Wow, talk about taking liberties with what the scripture does not say just to make it fit with catholism. More evidence that you honor your tradition higher than scripture.

Bobby I can't do this anymore today. The last post by the cavalry takes the cake. And then the "fathers" supporting the nonsense. LOLLLLLLLLLL. Sister wives-like that TV show I heard about?

Bobby, I can still respond to your posts and others. But I'm hitting the "good day junior" button for the RCC cavalry for today. That post is priceless.

"How can I understand unless somebody teaches me"

These were the women Paul were referring too. Simple Scripture. Open your eyes.

There were women traveling with them helping them and they were not the wives of the Apostles

These are some other "others" in the verses below

Mary the Mother of God
Martha
Mary the mother of Clopas
Mary the brother of Lazuras
Pricilla

Luke 8:1-3

The Parable of the Sower

8 After this, Jesus traveled about from one town and village to another, proclaiming the good news of the kingdom of God. The Twelve were with him, 2 and also some women who had been cured of evil spirits and diseases: Mary (called Magdalene) from whom seven demons had come out; 3 Joanna the wife of Chuza, the manager of Herod’s household; Susanna; and many others. These women were helping to support them out of their own means.

It is priceless to you since you were completely ignorant those scriptures when Paul used the words wives refers to the women in Luke. He wanted some women to help him too.

The words in Greek means sister and wives. I thought you were a Greek scholar?

I am very disappointed in you Mike. The Catholics I am familiar are more honest with the scriptures than you have been. What do your Catholic bibles say?
New American Bible
Do we not have the right to marry a believing woman like the apostles and the brothers of the Lord and Cephas?
New Jerusalem Bible
Have we not every right to eat and drink? And every right to be accompanied by a Christian wife like the other apostles, like the brothers of the Lord and like Cephas?( note on wife) Or "a wife who is a believer". In any case,for the work of attending to their material welfare, married apostles like Cephas(Peter) presumably took their wives.
None of us on here are Greek scholars but Dr. Richard Francis Weymouth is as were many of the translators of the Catholic bibles I listed above. Below by Dr. Weymouth, I think is one of the best translations of this verse.
1Co 9:5 Have we not a right to take with us on our journeys a Christian sister as our wife, as the rest of the Apostles do--and the Lord's brothers and Peter?
I am very disappointed in you. How can we hope to have an intelligent discussion if you revert to these type of tactics?

You don't disappoint me. You are a protester. You did not quote the NAB verse right so that is expected.

The key Greek words are adelphaen gunaika..

If you interpret to mean wives like your wife, then you are saying the apostles did not obey Jesus and leave everthing and follow him and that when Peter tells Jesus in Mark we have left everthing to follow you.

Who is lying ? Paul or Peter? Or maybe you think Jesus did not say that.

Btw. You see how Paul's says the the apostles and Cephas. This is one of many examples of the primacy of Peter

I suspect this is around the time Peter was leaving the fold to form the Catholic church. Paul and the other apostles seem to be distancing themselves from Peter. Of course Paul eventually challenged Peter openly. When Peter became Pope and wanted everybody to bow unto him the rest of the apostles must have treated him differently. No respect,I guess.

We will never come to agreement with Mike as long as he values his traditions more than scripture. When the scripture does not match his traditions, his thinking is that the scripture must be wrong, so he has to twist it to make it fit.

Besides all of that Mike does not use his own reasoning, none of his arguments are original, they come from catholic sources designed to proselytize. Catholics are not allowed to think for themselves.

Watch the three catholics here give this message negative judgment. That is how I know when I get them riled.

Mike is actually going against the Catholic church when he claims Peter did not have a wife. Scholars of two Catholic bibles teach completely different. Maybe he is becoming a heretic right before our eyes. I wonder if the other Catholics on here go against their bible. They are a very unstable group/

You are telling an untruth that I said Peter was never married. Protestants are good at making things up.

Of course he was married. The Bible does not lie. He had a mother-in-law that was sick and Jesus healed her.

Did Paul lie about wives or did Peter lie about leaving everything to follow Jesus?

You are saying one did.

How can anybody's arguments be original. The Bible is 1100 years old and Catholicism is 2000 years old.

The Apostles left all truth deposited in his Church.

You really must think you are God's chosen one, if you think that what you write on here is original.

Ludicrous.

I was speaking in the context of our discussion of 1 Cor 9:6 and the unmistakable fact Peter had a living wife that accompanied him. Your desire to believe she died beforehand does not hold water. Your Pope was married. Your requirement of unmarried priests is unbiblical and a manmade tradition. Sorry , that's just the way it is.

Your main doctrine is SS, which means you are free to make things up.

Name one Protestant from AD 100 to Ad 1500.

Of course you disagree with all other Protestants so your Christian history started what, maybe 30 years ago.

Name Peter's wife. He had one. I am sure he loved her dearly. He left her under Jesus' directions or she died.

Would you leave your wife and follow him if he asked you to?

You pick what happened.
