I am shocked by the story of the 4th century papyrus which refers to Jesus’ wife. Shocked I tell you. Shocked that the story wasn’t released just before Christmas or Easter. Oh well I guess this gives the History Channel some lead time for a new documentary for Christmas or Easter.
Really if Jesus had a wife she would never have allowed him to go out all night with the boys at the Garden of Gethsemane.
Plus I can imagine fictious conversations if Jesus had a Jewish wife.
“What you fed 5,000 people and you couldn’t come home with something to eat?”
“No you are not going to Caesarea Philippi wearing that. Do you know how long it took me to weave that seamless garment?”
The subject does make me wonder about future archeology. I can imagine some archaeologist digging up a book scrap that mentions “Abe Lincoln Vampire Killer” and inferring he was a Presidential version of Van Helsing.
