Have you heard the news stories that claim that Jesus was married with children?
To be honest, I never believed them or gave them a third thought.
I knew that the Biblical evidence was lacking so I shrugged it off.
But this morning as I read my Bible, I was shocked to see that I’ve been wrong to jump to false conclusions.
To my surprise, there is evidence that Jesus did have a son, afterall!
In fact, it appears as though his son was not biological but was adopted, which fits with the Biblical narrative of God’s love for widows and orphans.
Before you close your computer, I invite you to judge for yourself.
The proof is not in the scripture itself but actually in the heading of a Luke 7 passage,
“Jesus Raises a Widow’s Son”….
As an adoptive father myself, today I’m even more proud to be a follower of Jesus.
