    for a man and might not connote anything sexual at all However as Simon Jenkins wryly pointed out this week in his otherwise relatively dull Guardian article that statement probably tells us more about the Kentuckian seminarian than it does about Jesus The assumption in many of the responses that I read was that we as Christians would be horrified by the idea that people might suddenly be incorrectly believing that it had been proven that Jesus had a wife Now while I am slightly amused that some people have managed to reach that conclusion on the basis of Prof King s research what I m definitely not is horrified After all Jesus may well have been married In fact as has been pointed out many times it would have been very unusual for someone of his age cultural heritage religious affiliations and social status not to have been Here then is the crux if we wish to believe and argue that Jesus did not have a wife we must bear in mind that we do so not from evidence but from a lack thereof There is nothing in any of the accounts that we have that either clearly states or clearly denies that before during or after his ministry Jesus got married And the same could be said for all kinds of other aspects of his experience Of course it s very easy to fill in the gaps in the texts with our own ideas or those we have inherited and that s not necessary wrong after all tradition and experience are perfectly valid sources for theological enterprise However if the notion of an historical Jesus is to be of any use to us then we need to remember which ideas are based on what If we are wise I suggest we should not aggressively defend the historical truth of a concept of Jesus that has been constructed at least partly in a historical terms The early Christian communities it seems were well aware of this danger of co opting a figure like Jesus for this or that theological agenda We heard in last week s and today s gospels of how when Jesus told the disciples that the Son of Man must suffer be rejected die and be raised they were confused or offended Peter even taking Jesus aside and attempting to correct him It seems that the disciples thought they knew well what they messiah would and wouldn t do and if they were going to follow Jesus they needed him to conform to their preconceptions When Jesus rejected Peter s correction and continued talking about death and resurrection it seems that the group simply could not understand what he meant and were afraid to ask Maybe like those that the writer of the Wisdom of Solomon calls ungodly in today s first lesson they assumed that a truly righteous person would be spared the indignity of rejection torture and death Perhaps they thought dying was too
