ESSAY:  Do you believe Jesus was married? Why or why not?

Presvytera Deborah writes:  My answer-Yes. Culturally in that time itwas assumed that a man would be married. If he had not been married, it wouldhave been noted. Also, the reactions of Mary of Bethany toward Jesus whenhe came to see Lazarus were the actions of a married woman toward her mate(a Jewish woman sitting shiva for her dead brother would have only exitedthe house in response to a call from her husband).
