DOES IT MATTER IF JESUS WAS MARRIED 

The Civil Writer Magazine

The 2007 documentary The Lost Tomb of Jesus proposed that evidence existed to show that Jesus was married to Mary Magdalene a Jewish woman who, according to the four canonical gospels, traveled with Jesus and that their son was named Judah, based upon inscriptions found on ossuaries discovered in Jerusalem in 1980. A tomb in a suburb of Jerusalem excavated in 1980 contains bone boxes with names of some of Jesus' family members. Inscription reads "Yeshua son of Yehosef," or "Jesus son of Joseph."

This may explain why Jesus and John the Baptist cleansed themselves in the Jordan river. It was not because of sins they committed because atonement for sin was done in the temple. It may have been because Jesus and John were around menstruating wives whose issue would prevent them from going into the temple unless they were cleansed. Therefore it came to pass in those days that Jesus came from Nazareth of Galilee, and was baptized (bathed) by John in the Jordan.

Leviticus 15: 19 And if a woman have an issue, and her issue in her flesh be blood, she shall be put apart seven days: and whosoever toucheth her shall be unclean until the even. ...21 And whosoever toucheth her bed shall wash his clothes, and bathe himself in water, and be unclean until the even.
