    LOVE OF RECENTLY MARRIED PEOPLE

    One day, Jesus was paying a visit to his most dearly-more-than-a-cousin, John the Immerser, over the other side of the Jordan. Perhaps, it had been a long time since they had seen each other last. (John 10:40)

    Soon enough, while he was enjoying the company of his dearly host, a messenger from Bethany had arrived with the message that Lazarus was so sick that he was approaching his last hour. Jesus waved the urgency, discarded the messenser, and stayed for another two days.

    Before Jesus started stinking like a fish, he gathered his disciples and headed towards Bethany. There is a saying in Hebrew that, "Orechim ve dagim masrichim aharei shelosha yamim." In English it won't sound so funny but it goes thus, "Guests and fish start stinking after three days." Then, he headed towards Bethany.

    At the sight of Bethany, but still a few yards away, Martha, in tears, was running to meet Jesus, as she informed him that Lazarus had been buried already for four days. Somehow, Jesus waved her excitement away as if he had not listened to her, and aked, "Where is Mary?"

    Martha got the message and ran back to the house to inform Mary that Jesus had arrived and was asking for her. Mary, promptly arose, and still in tears, went to meet him. As Jesus realized that Mary was crying, a strong disturbance occurred in the deepest of his emotions, and he also joined her in her predicament with likewise a tearful face.

    Conclusion:

    a) At the news that Lazarus was at his final hour, Jesus discarded the messenger and the message for at least another two days.

    b) At meeting a crying Martha with the message that Lazarus was already buried, he asked for Mary.

    c) Mary didn't even have to speak, but the sight of a tearful face in his beloved, it was enough to extract from the depth of his heart such a disturbed emotion that caused Jesus to melt all down in tears.

    That could not be anything else but love of the kind of recently married people. That's an extra evidence that they were married to each other. (John 11:1-38)

    I would like to enhance the thread above, by bringing up the fact that the way Jesus felt about Mary Magdalene was an obvious evidence that they were married, as this thread illustrates the occasion.
