  1. Couple of things stand out IMO. JC not being married even at 30. That was unusual. And also according to some Mary Magdalene was his favorite disciple and the future church was supposed to be headed by women. How wonderful that would have been.

    Almost all of the history of religious tradition says he was better informed.

    I would REMIND you that almost all of Jesus’ female ancestors in the Bible (including His mother who had Him not having Him with her husband) where borderline errant women.
