    If they're all things missing from the Bible then this is just mere speculation could Jesus have kids and a wife and that it could been covered up to protect their fate
    But if that was the case it will not be known to the public to prevent the same thing that happened to Jesus to his family because when Jesus was on the earth he the affected people in two ways influence you to give up everything you had to follow him or making you so mad people wanted to crucify him because his teachings so I would like to entertain the possibility of this just something to think about I've been thinking about this for a long time and I'll even hesitant to post it because it being such a controversial idea but did Jesus have a family before he was crucified but if he did the church would keep it hidden protect his family from the people that wanted him killed would have done the same to his children I know most of us have seen the movie DaVinci's code but is there any truth to it in your opinion

    If Jesus had a wife and kids, it would be VERY hard to keep that quiet, people would be asking the question of whether or not we should worship Jesus' kids. Since the Gospels already contain hard teachings about or from Jesus as it is, and the church sought to answer them rather than sweep them under the rug, I have no doubt that they would treat Jesus's wife and kids the same way if he'd had them.

    Its impossible to hide it if He had a wife and kids because He always in the company of the Apostles.

    Jesus created all children of the world /MANKIND, why would He need to have kids again ?

    "If you tell a lie big enough and keep repeating it, people will eventually come to believe it." joseph goebbels.
    You have to dig deep to find any truth in the davinci code.
    Jesus is totaly without sin, that means he did not accept half truths, evassions from the truth or compromises with the truth.
    Had he been married then we would have been told.

    Jesus being revealed was a revealing of what had been covered ie unknown.

    Rom 16
    [25] Now to him that is of power to stablish you according to my gospel, and the preaching of Jesus Christ, according to the revelation of the mystery, which was kept secret since the world began,
    [26] But now is made manifest, and by the scriptures of the prophets, according to the commandment of the everlasting God, made known to all nations for the obedience of faith:
    [27] To God only wise, be glory through Jesus Christ for ever. Amen.

    No Christ Jesus did not, could not reproduce children.

    It is already known; Christ IS God; God who is without beginning. God Can Not "reproduce" something that is "without beginning" or "with beginning".

    Nope, never watched it. If that movie stated or implied Jesus was married and reproduced offspring; it is not the truth.

    No truth at all. In fact, everything we know about early Church history proves the movie wrong.

    What about the lost Gospels or other material that the church did not seen fit to make public because it was in conflict for what they believed in

    Most people have not seen the movie. The idea has no merit.

    What lost Gospels? Several early Christians tell us that there were only 4.

    Who are these early Christians you speak of? Gospel just means "good news". Paul taught gospel. So did Thomas, Mary, Philip, etc. The synoptics were to the Jews. Pauls gospel was to the Gentiles. There were probably close to 100 gospels by the end of the second century that were written. Oral tradition taught gospel as well.

    Gospel merely is truth by way of the son. The Holy Spirit inspired writers to place the truth in written word as well. It was man who took a scalpel to gospel truth. The Biblical Canon was developed by men, not God.

    The Dead Sea Scrolls are ancient Jewish writings. There are no "gospels" there.

    There were so-called "gospels" like the "Gospel of Thomas" written in the second century. However, these were much, much later than the canonical gospels. They contain all kinds of nonsense, and early Christians did not quote them.

    Irenaeus of Lyons and Papias of Hierapolis are among other early Christians saying explicitly that there were only 4 written gospels.

    The early church fathers were caught lying about the "other Gospels" They thought they had destroyed them all until Nag Hammadi. When retrieved, the books were proven to not depict what the church fathers wrote of them. It doesn't matter when something was conceived written during the early Christian era. Oral tradition was the common communication for decades before the written gospels or other Christian writings.

    The Gospel of Thomas has a probability range to a time before the synoptics and before John. Irenaeus and Tetullian created heresy to make their views stand above (basically name callers), like the word "racist" is used today. When you cut through the ignorance, the books written before these dudes attempted to shred them, shows why they resorted to murder to eliminate them.

    The Holy Spirit was quite active in men, until men tamed it to their own desire of power over the people.

    We know that the Canon was corrupted over the centuries. Even Origen said it was, through certain fallible scribes. And the early catholics (small c) tried corrupting the Galatians with their "other gospel" which Paul spoke against as early as 50AD.

    The Spirit shows the only uncorruptible truth. Not men.

    Please re-phrase your question or comments using punctuation marks and proper sentences. It is very difficult to understand what you are even asking when you do not use any punctuation, sentences or paragraph structure.

    Biblical distortion to protect us<----- OP

    A strange title IMO.

    Scripture does not distort. Scripture is designed to REVEAL knowledge.

    The Understanding of the Knowledge, is designed to be REVEALED only to the faithful, BY God Himself.

    We could just make stuff up and ask about it all day long. Did Jesus have a tail like a mouse? Did Jesus have red hair? Did Jesus secretly tell Peter exactly how many hairs he had on his head?

    To no avail. Forget about such idle speculations.

    You're talking about details no one cares about
    But I'm curious to see what people's opinions are when it comes to the possibility of him having offspring
    Because I truly believe he did
    Proof of it in humanity itself
