A tepid attempt to fictionalize what has been suggested in many books (The Lost Gospel and Veritas) to name two, about Jesus having taken a wife. Did he? I doubt we will ever know given how scripture has been translated, retranslated, lost and found, etc over the centuries. It wouldn’t take a great leap of faith to believe it if he did. After all he was a rigidly devout Jewish man. It (marriage) was required by biblical law to do so. I did not finish this book not because I found it offensive or blasphemous, it wasn’t at all in my opinion. I just thought it was poorly written. I guess the greatest story ever told should be left well enough alone.
