An Improbable Journey

clip_image001OFF TOPIC BUT*:  LiveScience has just published a new article by Owen Jarus, ‘Gospel of Jesus’s Wife’: Records Hint at Improbable Journey of Controversial Papyrus.

Now, records obtained from various sources by Live Science — many of which are publicly available online in databases in Florida and Germany, as well as on the Internet Archive— show that if the papyrus is authentic, the story behind how it came to the United States would be astounding. The records also describe how, if the papyrus is fake, the forger (or forgers) may have crafted such a realistic specimen.

* We’ve discussed it many times.

  1. Why waste time with a papyrus that will tell us nothing? Karen King may be a respected scholar but everyone in the field knows what her beliefs are. That is where the agenda lies.
    Will the anonymous owner please stand up? We don’t need more cases like the James ossuary. So let us continue with what is genuine and important: the book called Acts.

  2. Some tie back this came up amongst a few different folks I know and I did not nor would not accept the theory. In my untrained Catholic mind, Jesus as the Son of God Almighty had/has no need for a wife and kids. He is the 2nd person of the Holy Trinity – God the Father, God the Son and God the Holy Spirit. No place in the New Testament is a wife of Jesus spoken of. If Jesus was married, surely it would be shown there. He was not married.
