He couldn't have married 5 women who were already married.<quoted text>
I didn't read any stories like that either. But Jews by law in the time of Jesus could marry five wives.
That burden would be on you to prove.So what Jesus did or didn't do regarding matrimonial relationships, it's still in the earth or possibly on one of the five miles of shelves in the Vatican archives.
It was written they were to have only one wife, and there is zero record of Jesus ever having been married. Paul also wrote that you should marry only if you couldn't control your lust. That single people can serve the Lord better. No one has said Jesus was anti marriage, only that he taught against eternal marriage, and that he had better things to do then get married.Either way, I think God would follow his own laws as he commanded us to follow them, including commandments for relationships, it just makes sense. He factually had a bevy of women followers and it obviously disturbed Judas. If Jesus was so anti-marital relationship as many like you believe he was, don't you think instead of it being an opinion of Paul, Paul would have stated the Lord commanded that those weak to the flesh should marry but it was better to be faithful and single? Don't you think Jesus would have made sure all his disciples were single or divorced with no wish to remarry for his church offices? If Jesus was so against marriage don't you think it would have been written to be a bishop or deacon one must be single and never married?
Paranoia will destroy ya. We have copies of most of the gospels written before the Church put them together in one collection. They show no tampering. Failed again.The RCC fathers that set forth what was in the NT, they made sure marriage was not an important item except in two cases. They made sure polygamy was never mentioned in a single verse after it's existence in Jewish writings for 4000 years. They made sure not to include 'marriage stories' as are contained through out the OT.
