Mormons baptize Jesus in the Temple and marry him to Mary Magdalene

Jesus of Nazareth, also known as Jesus Christ, or simply Jesus, is
the central figure of Christianity. The life and sermons of Jesus form
the basis of the Christian faith. Jesus Christ is recognized by
believing Christians as God incarnate, the Son of God who was raised
from the dead—the Redeemer of mankind—the most important figure in

According to Mormon doctrine, Jesus Christ is the Savior of the
world. However, it seems that even the perceived Savior of the world is
not exempt from LDS temple rituals. Proxy rites for Jesus Christ were
performed in the Salt Lake (LDS) Temple in Utah, in April 2010. The
Salt Lake Temple, located on Temple Square in the heart of
Mormon-dominated Salt Lake City, was dedicated on April 6, 1893—three
years before Utah became a state in 1896—and is one of the oldest of
the 132 currently operating temples that are owned and maintained by
The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (LDS.)

New FamilySearch is the online genealogy database of the LDS Church
that contains updated details of LDS temple ordinances that have been
done for dead people. There are multiple listings for Jesus Christ in
New FamilySearch—under different versions of his identity—which have
been submitted by individual Mormons. It is not known how many times
Jesus has been subjected to LDS rites because all New FamilySearch
records for him—including combined records—show LDS ordinance details
as “Not Available.”

On May 27, 2010, there were two similar records for Jesus in New
FamilySearch which had been submitted by the same person. One listing
was titled “Jesus Christian,” and showed “Jesus Christian” was born
“before 1500 Bethlehem, Israel,” and died “before 1550 Jerusalem,
Israel.” LDS ordinances were tagged as “Not available” on this record.
The other entry was for “Jesus Cristian,” who was born “before 1502
Bethlehem, Israel,” and died “before 1539 Jerusalem, Israel.” The entry
for “Jesus Cristian” gave a description of LDS ordinances, along with
the name of a spouse—“Maria Magdelena.”

“Jesus Cristian” was baptized and confirmed a member of the LDS
Church by proxy on April 8, 2010 in the “Salt Lake City Utah Temple.”
“Jesus Cristian” was also subjected to initiatory temple ordinances on
April 8, 2010; an endowment ceremony on April 9, 2010; and a marriage
“sealing” to “spouse” “Maria Magdelena” on April 9, 2010—all rites
occurred in the “Salt Lake City Utah Temple.”

It appears the submissions for “Jesus Christian,” and “Jesus
Cristian” were attempts to manipulate the identity of Jesus Christ
through the LDS temple system. The misspelled “Cristian,” instead of
“Christian,” could have been a typo, or a deliberate error. It may have
been intentionally entered as “Cristian” to get around a computer
program that automatically blocks submissions that contain the names
“Jesus Christ.” That would explain why the entry for “Jesus Christian”
shows LDS ordinances as “Not available.”

While both New FamilySearch records in question lack complete birth
and death data, and give imprecise “before” years of these events—the
first name “Jesus” combined with the surnames “Christian” and
“Cristian” (both spins on the name of “Christ”) are signs that “Jesus
Christian” and “Jesus Cristian” are pseudonyms for Jesus Christ.

Other indicators on the New FamilySearch records that point to Jesus
Christ are the birth place, “Bethlehem,” and the death location,
“Jerusalem.” (Jesus Christ was born in Bethlehem and died outside the
walls of old Jerusalem.) Another clue to the identity of “Jesus
Cristian” is the name of his “spouse”—“Maria Magdelena,” a misspelled
variant of Mary Magdalene. “Maria Magdelena” is not listed on the
“Jesus Christian” record.

Because “Jesus Christian” and “Jesus Cristian” have similar names
and identical birth and death locations—“Bethlehem” and “Jerusalem,”
they are probably the same person. Their birth and death years are
similar, but not the same. The estimated dates listed for these events
look like they have been fabricated. According to their New
FamilySearch records, “Jesus Christian” and “Jesus Cristian” were born
and died in the 16th century. “Jesus Christian” lived roughly 50 years,
while “Jesus Cristian” died in his thirties.

On May 27, 2010, “Maria Magdelena” was listed in New FamilySearch
with her birth date as “1504 Israel,” and death date as “before 1540
Israel.” Both years are likely inventions. Along with “spouse” “Jesus
Cristian,” “Maria Magdelena” was baptized and confirmed a member of the
LDS Church by proxy on April 8, 2010 in the “Salt Lake City Utah
Temple.” She was subjected to initiatory temple ordinances on April 8,
2010; an endowment ceremony on April 9, 2010; and the marriage
“sealing” to “Jesus Cristian” on April 9, 2010—all rites were done in
the “Salt Lake City Utah Temple.”

Mary Magdalene is described in the New Testament as a faithful
follower of Jesus. Because the concept of marriage is strongly
emphasized in LDS teachings, the notion that a spousal relationship
existed between Jesus and Mary Magdalene is common among
Mormons—although that belief is not formal LDS doctrine. There is no
reliable historical evidence to indicate that Jesus was married—to Mary
Magdalene, or anyone else.

LDS Church officials have publicly stated that the New FamilySearch
program is a technological deterrent to improper submissions. Yet—under
their very noses—on Temple Square in Salt Lake City, Jesus Christ—under
a false name—two millennia after his birth, was offered Mormon
salvation and an erroneous eternal marriage sealing.

Sometime late in the day on May 27, 2010, the individual entries for
“Jesus Cristian” and “Maria Magdelena” were scrubbed from New
FamilySearch—concealing the evidence that LDS rites had recently been
performed for these two names in the Salt Lake Temple. The sudden
disappearance of these records is a strong indication that “Jesus
Cristian” and “Maria Magdelena” represent Jesus Christ and Mary
