    Jesus simply had a “mystical” relationship, not physical of course, with the women around him. It is very clear in the Gospel that this is true. The same is true now, and in heaven, especially with women religious members of the orders of the Church. – nationalchristianassociation.bravehost.com

  2. What the Gnostic writings has to do with the true gospel of salvation? Through history many people had and still tried to strip Jesus of His deity.The marriage is taken to be proof that He was not God in the flesh,but only a mortal man.Lies sell very well,the truth does not.Anything based on a lie is a lie and the truth always prevails.The Holy blood Holy grail pretend that Jesus escaped death on the cross and married Mary Magdalene.Then da vinci code pretend a secret marriage between Jesus and Mary Magdalene and the real blood of the grail is inside Mary based on the painting of the last supper by leonardo da vinci.Now a scholar pretend a writing words on a papyrus about Jesus wife and titled that papyrus in the shape of a credit card,a gospel! Actually in the above fake stories there is a very dangerous and deceiving lie about the real blood and the wife.The truth is that REAL and HOLY blood is on Jesus’ forehead and not in the womb of Mary Magdalene or any other woman.This is revealed by souheil bayoud in the true story the coin of the temple.As for the wife,the impossibility of the marriage of Jesus is like the physical resurrection which can not be seen by the blinds and is not and will not be revealed to disbelievers and opponents to Orthodox Christianity.
