Why do Christians perpetuate this myth about Jesus being unmarried?In Jewish law Rabbis had to be married. And, the Bible refers to Jesus as a Rabbi!
Jesus was *not* a Rabbi – there were no Rabbis at that time. This suggests that whoever wrote the Christian scriptures was not alive during the life of Jesus, or they would have known this basic fact.
And no, not all Rabbis are married.
I realise that the Christian bible refers to Jesus as a ‘rabbi’, but the Christian bible doesn’t get to define who is and is not ordained in Judaism!
Jesus was a preacher, he taught very basic Judaism. Nothing more than that. He was one of many, many young men claiming to be ‘maschiach’.
