    So I heard some news that turned out to be over twenty years old, that Jesus has sons, wife, etc. And James Cameron is going to film them.

    His followers think he was human. Not divine, just a chosen messenger, like they think of Moses, Jesus, many of the same great men of religious history.

    In fact it's weird we don't hear as much about how Muslims revere Jesus.

    I think Christians need not be worried about this one way or the other, I mean Jesus' greatness was in what he did and said, not who his Dad was...

    Yeah but this is kind of a sacred deal here. Jesus fell into the 3 in one as his life on earth as a man he certainly became very aware of our short comings! But interesting comment.
    I highly disagree Jesus had a wife or anything like that because we as people want to be on the same level playing field for lack of better wording. So if Jesus was getting laid then why sweat us on human urges for example??? I mean accountably can’t be enforced.

    What did he say regarding human urges? Thought we were supposed to procreate... heck, even God knocked up someone elses wife.

    I don't think Jesus ever actually said he was the son of God, or God.
    He referred to God as 'father' like all religious people (our father who art in heaven...).

    He proclaimed to be the Son of God on the earth. But procreating is one thing but being married was the correct way to handle things. We as humans have added a lot of mixes to this idea with our own desires. I'm sure some could disagree on my account and that is fine. But I will say in minor defence how about STD and AIDS for staters.

    I think James Cameron noticed how much money Dan Brown made off his fictional work and thought he might as well get some of that money coming his way. There's a large ignorant mass of people out there, just waiting to grab onto the latest "research" as put forth by Hollywood.

    Do you know where he said he was the son of God? Chapter/verse/etc? I had a religious friend tell me Jesus never actually claimed he was divine, but if you have some info, please share.

    When did marriage start? Tough to ascertain that Jesus did NOT marry, tough to prove what someone didn't do. After reading more about the 'discovery' someone made a goo dpoint: Jesus' followers who were promoting his divinity (whether you believe in him or not) would surely have scratched off his name from a tomb that was contrary to their goals, or buried him elsewhere so as not to upset the doctrine.
