Mrs. Jesus??

You might have seen a recent headline about a finding of a fragment of an writing that refers to Jesus having a wife. Anytime there is a sensational headline about our faith, you shouldn’t get too excited.

Here is a short response by Carl Olson.

Here is an more detailed analysis from Jimmy Akin, in which he concludes:

The bottom line is that the newly announced fragment is of doubtful origin, may be fake, and is so devoid of context that it’s hard to tell what the passage is even about.

It certainly does not present shocking new revelations that threaten the traditional Christian view of Jesus as celibate.
