Is anyone else bothered by the fact that the head of this ministry peddles his doctrinal peculiarities while wearing what appears to be U.S. Naval uniform as if in an attempt to foster the impression that to disagree with him is to disrespect the military? Check out the video.
The theory is based on the following. Since a Bar Mitzvah is at 13, a young man should be expected to have gotten married and fathered his first child by age of fifteen. This in turn is based on the assumption that since a Jew could not become a rabbi until they reached the age of 30 since one could not be considered an elder until one had his first grandchild.Through careful examination, it is easily deducible such reason (if it can be called that) does not apply to our own ere of increasing life spans.
Here's the reason why. If we are to be honor Mary and Joseph as the ideal Jewish couple, that would mean by this standard that they were 15ish by the time Jesus was born. Therefore, if Jesus died around 33 years of age, that would mean Joseph was dead by his mid 40's since Jesus asks John to take care of Mary. Thus, are those advocating what today amounts to child marriage themselves ready to kick the bucket by the time they are 50 years old?
