Jesus’ Marriage may be a Sham

Well, actually, there’s no good proof he was married. But opinions are coming in from all over that maybe the “Gospel of Jesus’ wife” is too good to be true. The two main things that strike many of us are:

1. What are the chances? That a surviving fragment just happens to mention Jesus saying he was married, a hot button issue these days, is awfully convenient.

2. The fragment owner is supposedly interested in selling his collection to Harvard. The world’s oldest motive for committing a fraud might be involved.

As usual in these cases, James McGrath is doing a roundup of all the news and opinion. His second post on the subject is here, with no doubt more to come.
