Welcome to the new-and-improved KingDavid8.com! I finally have all of the contents from my old site transferred here, so everything should be working properly. Please let me know if you find any "dead links". My pages also have boxes where readers can leave comments and criticisms, so don't be shy.
This website is mostly aimed at providing arguments and evidence for the non-Christian, the Christian who may be struggling with what he or she believes, or those Christians who are interested in reaching out to others.
My opinions may contradict what other Christians believe, but many of my arguments are also based on arguments given by a variety of Christian sources. I especially owe a debt of gratitude to the writings of Glenn Miller, J.P. Holding, Paul Maier, Grant R. Jeffrey, Lee Strobel, and Gerald Schroeder.
Please feel free to borrow ideas or arguments of mine (since many of them were not mine to begin with). I do ask that if you quote from my site directly, to please credit me.
Wasn't Jesus Married, Since Jewish Law States All Rabbis Must Be?
Jewish law states that all OFFICIAL rabbis must be married. Though Jesus did accept the title 'rabbi' from people on occasion, He was clearly not an official rabbi, and thus there would be no requirement for Him to be married. John 7:15 says "And the Jews marveled, saying, 'How does this man have learning, having never studied?'" Is Jesus was an official rabbi, the rabbis would have known He had studied. The New Testament also makes it clear that Jesus was an enemy of the scribes and pharisees of His day. This could not have been the case if Jesus was recognized by them as a rabbi.
This aside, COULD Jesus have been married? No. If He was, it would have mentioned this fact SOMEWHERE in the Bible. Some argue that the wedding Jesus attends in Cana was His own wedding, though the Bible clearly states that He was 'invited' (John 2:2). The groom would never be 'invited' to his own wedding! So, overall, the argument that Jesus was married has nothing to support it and much to contradict it.
