Jesus Christ



22. Why didn’t Jesus get married and beget children?



Because God did not want His Son to get married and to have children. However, this does not mean that Jesus will never get married, for one day Jesus Christ also will get married. However, His marriage will be a particular marriage, for He will marry the Church, as it is written: “And I heard as it were the voice of a great multitude, and as the voice of many waters, and as the voice of mighty thunderings, saying, Alleluia: for the Lord God omnipotent reigneth. Let us be glad and rejoice, and give honour to him: for the marriage of the Lamb is come, and his wife hath made herself ready. And to her was granted that she should be arrayed in fine linen, clean and white: for the fine linen is the righteousness of saints [fine linen stands for the righteous acts of the saints]” (Revelation 19:6-8). This is confirmed by Paul in his second epistle to the Corinthians when he says that he has betrothed them to one husband, that he may present them as a chaste virgin to Christ (2 Corinthians 11:2 – NKJV)
