A faded fragment of papyrus known as the “Gospel of Jesus’s Wife,” which caused an uproar when unveiled by a Harvard Divinity School historian in 2012, has been tested by scientists who conclude in a journal published on Thursday that the ink and papyrus are very likely ancient, and not a modern forgery.

Skepticism about the tiny scrap of papyrus has been fierce because it contained a phrase never before seen in any piece of Scripture: “Jesus said to them, ‘My wife...’ ” Too convenient for some, it also contained the words “she will be able to be my disciple,” a clause that inflamed the debate in some churches over whether women should be allowed to be priests.

No wonder there were so many brains strewn about the pavement today.

The only way Jesus could have been a teacher or Rabbi is if he was married. It was part of the law. His bones, along with those of his mother and wife, have been found in the family Talpiot. The book the Jesus Discovery by Dr. James Tabor should be required reading for any and everyone that considers themselves Christian.

If you are shaken by the news, Read "Lamb" by Christopher Moore. Although it is another piece of fiction, it gives anther perspective and is hilarious to boot as told by Biff, a childhood friend of Jesus.
