  1. I love considering Jesus having been married.

    He needed to fulfill “all righteousness”

    Also I’ve heard tell in order to enter into portions of the temple you needed to be married.

    Christ preached in the temple.

    The place in the temple where preaching occurred required you to have been married.

    I don’t have a source for this just remember reading it somewhere.

    I’d be curious to hear your opinions on this and if you had a source?

    Maybe good to cover when we get to Jesus preaching in the temple.

    • This is amazing. It could be that the marriage at Cana was Christ’s. If not, it doesn’t mean he wasn’t married at any other time. The record is silent from when he was 12 – 30, and most men in that time period would have been married before hitting 30. I believe it was Orson Pratt or Orson Hyde who went so far as to say Christ had children and they could have descended from him. Looking at Isaiah 53, I don’t think that is the case. But, I also would not be surprised if he was married though I don’t know the answer to that for certain. When Jesus taught in the temple, it looks like for the most part it would have been in the courtyard. Only priests were allowed entrance to the temple, which means only Levites. They would not have let him in the building itself. Hebrews 9:24 says that Jesus did not enter a Holy Place made by hands, seemingly referencing that he never entered the physical building itself. If he was permitted to enter, his preaching would have been limited to only teaching priests. He would have been able to minister to his disciples from the courtyard of the temple though.
      In the Book of Leviticus, chapter 21 it outlines marriage requirements for the high priest: “And he shall take a wife in her virginity. A widow, or a divorced woman, or profane, or an harlot, these shall he not take: but he shall take a virgin of his own people to wife.” This is reinforced in Ezekiel 44. In the Mishnah (Jewish oral law), specifically Yoma i which covers the feasts and traditions, it explicitly states that the High Priest must be married before entering the Holy of Holies. In fact, it goes as far as to recommend a second wife on standby before the Day of Atonement just in case something happened to the first wife so the High Priest could still enter the Holy of Holies. It’s wild. So, Christ entered the real Holy of Holies by going to his Father in Heaven. The question is, was the marriage requirement a symbol of Christ’s marriage to Israel? Did Christ have to get married in this life to fulfill all righteousness, or was that all pointing to his taking Israel as His bride? I think there can be both a literal and symbolic fulfillment of this. I suspect that he was or will be married, but I don’t have the details to point at anything concrete. Great question, I wish we had the time to fully hit this in an episode, I feel we have not yet finished talking about this yet this year in the New Testament. So many marriage references and of course, the act of atonement itself. If we don’t get it in there, maybe a bonus episode? Anyways, thanks for the great comment and insight, we love it!! Hope this helps, would love to hear more of your thoughts.

  2. I enjoyed your podcast. I did want to leave a comment about the miracles of Jesus.
    It appears to me that Jesus was raised up (i.e. resurrected) by God the Father per Acts 5:30-31 and 1 Pet. 1:21. Therefor that could not be a miracle Jesus performed.

    • Michael, great insight and thanks for sharing. I am super glad you pointed that out. It makes me think about how he had to be a physical son of God, and in my mind, I see the eternal nature of the sacrifice in that it was a God that sacrificed eternal life to die. Because the eternal part of him died, the mortal was able to be raised up by God. Thanks for bringing that up and sharing, and thanks for listening to the show!

It makes sense for many schools and online learning platforms to devote their time and resources into those core courses and curriculum that are in most demand. As a result, this strategy gives them the biggest bang for their dollar and ensures a steady stream of traffic. However, Add On Education is different, and the best way to describe it is like a journey. We most importantly seek to add on to core learning additional courses, insights and perspective not found anywhere else. As such, we feel like it's like a journey to unique discoveries. To sum up, we feel what we have to offer is learning that's worth the journey.
