Gospel of Jesus’ Wife

NORMAN BROWN – ADDICTIVE  LOVE

Gospel of Jesus’ Wife
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

The “Gospel of Jesus’ Wife” is the name given to the text on a papyrus fragment with writing in Egyptian Coptic that includes the words, “Jesus said to them, ‘my wife…'”.[1] The text on the fragment is alleged to be a fourth-century Coptic translation of what is said to be “a gospel probably written in Greek in the second half of the second century.”[2]

Professor Karen L. King (who announced the existence of the papyrus in 2012) and her colleague AnneMarie Luijendijk named the fragment the “Gospel of Jesus’s Wife” for reference purposes[3] but have since acknowledged the name was controversial.[note 1] King has insisted that the fragment, “should not be taken as proof that Jesus, the historical person, was actually married”.[4] Luijendijk and fellow papyrologist Roger Bagnall authenticated the papyrus with Luijendijk suggesting it would have been impossible to forge. 

The Vatican’s newspaper L’Osservatore Romano has claimed the gospel is a “very modern forgery”.[5] A number of independent scholars have since provided evidence to support this view, suggesting the papyrus includes textual mistakes (a typographical error) identical to those made only in a particular on-line modern iteration of corresponding texts.[6]  [read more]
