Papyrus Mentions Mrs. Jesus
The New York Times:
A historian of early Christianity at Harvard Divinity School has identified a scrap of papyrus that she says was written in Coptic in the fourth century and contains a phrase never seen in any piece of Scripture: “Jesus said to them, ‘My wife …'” The faded papyrus fragment is smaller than a business card, with eight lines on one side, in black ink legible under a magnifying glass. Just below the line about Jesus having a wife, the papyrus includes a second provocative clause that purportedly says, “she will be able to be my disciple.”The discovery is expected to cause an uproar at the hot sweaty man-centric Vatican. Which is about the only interesting part of the story, really, if you hold the position that I do.
