A book "The Lost Gospel" by York University (Canada) professor Barrie Wilson and documentarian Simcha Jacobovici is due out on October 12th from the publishing house rooted in the British Library. And this book claims that Jesus was married to Mary Magdalene and had children. News stations and newspaper all over the internet have been picking up on this, and turning it into an explosive affair. If you want to know more about this, check out the article attached above. What I don't understand is this: why? Why does it matter? No where was it said that if Jesus had been married and had children it would have been at all a sin. Instead, the fear that they are trying to instill in peoples comes from assumptions: that this book is trying to say that Christianity's roots cannot be true, or that people are attacking their theological roots. However, this is a big mistake to fall into. If you look at the history of the bible, and all copies of the scripture, it does not take much to learn and realize they are from two centuries after the time of Jesus the entire concept of Christianity takes on a vastly different hue. During the years of the council of Nicea, many parts and gospels were discarded, and even though that remained were altered and written for various audiences. Paul outright admitted he changed his message based on where he was and the listeners at hand. Anything is possible. Believe or have faith in what you want. Just don't try to tell someone else their version of truth is any less than yours: as well all know, the truth is based on the present that it is part of, and it can be hard to track or manage as true or false as time goes on. Instead, stick to your beliefs and believe in what you find to be truth, while still respecting those who choose to believe something different!

@nehapatel, also, you may be interested in my own speculations about the life and death of Jesus
no matter what they say about Jesus Christ, I believe in Him Strongly and know He died and Resurrected on the third day, for me to be forgiven of my sins. Amen
You know, @starboy300, it haunts me that in a way, you are absolutely right.
it REAL, than I thought
That is the saying of Gospel perverts who has faith in their dollars, and no faith in the word of God the Gospel of Christ. Jesus was not Married to Mary or to whoever. He was busy doing his Father's will and had no time for that. Jesus never called Mary honey or sweetie neither did he called his mother mama. He said, "woman." Mary Magdalene response that she knew he was the Son of God the saviour of the world. John 9:[4] I must work the works of him that sent me, while it is day: the night cometh, when no man can work. [5] As long as I am in the world, I am the light of the world. Luke 2:[43] And when they had fulfilled the days, as they returned, the child Jesus tarried behind in Jerusalem; and Joseph and his mother knew not of it. [44] But they, supposing him to have been in the company, went a day's journey; and they sought him among their kinsfolk and acquaintance. [45] And when they found him not, they turned back again to Jerusalem, seeking him. [46] And it came to pass, that after three days they found him in the temple, sitting in the midst of the doctors, both hearing them, and asking them questions. [47] And all that heard him were astonished at his understanding and answers. [48] And when they saw him, they were amazed: and his mother said unto him, Son, why hast thou thus dealt with us? behold, thy father and I have sought thee sorrowing. [49] And he said unto them, How is it that ye sought me? wist ye not that I must be about my Father's business? [50] And they understood not the saying which he spake unto them. John 11:[21] Then said Martha unto Jesus, Lord, if thou hadst been here, my brother had not died. [22] But I know, that even now, whatsoever thou wilt ask of God, God will give it thee. [23] Jesus saith unto her, Thy brother shall rise again. [24] Martha saith unto him, I know that he shall rise again in the resurrection at the last day. [25] Jesus said unto her, I am the resurrection, and the life: he that believeth in me, though he were dead, yet shall he live: [26] And whosoever liveth and believeth in me shall never die. Believest thou this? [27] She saith unto him, Yea, Lord: I believe that thou art the Christ, the Son of God, which should come into the world. [28] And when she had so said, she went her way, and called Mary her sister secretly, saying, The Master is come, and calleth for thee.
