Double Standards?
I wonder if the same uproar occurred when people started portraying Jesus as a pale European. That certainly wasn't in the Bible....

Re: Double Standards?
Exactly my point. While you're one that does not agree with it, have you made much of a fuss over it? (Not saying that you've made much of a fuss over Jesus' "married life", don't know that either)

Now with all the anti-semetic sentiment in the old days, and even now, in europe, do you think most people thought like you? They were all too happy to accept an image of Jesus that was more like them than the jews they hated, regardless of what the Bible said.

There is in fact a stronger argument in the Bible against Jesus' pale white skin, than there is against him being married.
To scoff at the latter and not the former is strongly hypocritical by most protestors against Jesus' alleged marriage.

Re: Double Standards?
I accept what you're saying Phat, but lets be straight with ourselves here. you have as much proof of Jesus' bachelorhood, as others have of his marriage....nothing.

Its simply assertion on both sides.

The Bible was silent on this. Of course the possibility exists that the documentation of this (marriage or not) was destroyed, along with many other scriptures, in order to keep people in the dark over it.

Ironically, had these writings survived, they would have made the existence of Christ so much more believable.
