Study: “Jesus Wife” Fragment not a Fake

posted on April 10, 2014

CNN reports on the conclusion from a team of scientists indicating that a controversial scrap of papyrus where Jesus says “my wife” is real. “A wide range of scientific testing indicates that a papyrus fragment containing the words, ‘Jesus said to them, my wife’ is an ancient document, dating between the sixth to ninth centuries CE,” Harvard Divinity School said in a statement. Karen King, a Harvard Divinity School historian, revealed the document in 2012, and said, “The main topic of the fragment is to affirm that women who are mothers and wives can be disciples of Jesus.”
