It's just a miracle how things that confirm everything that liberals know is true are somehow confirmed by the "authority" of science.

Actually, although I'm not an expert on ancient papyrii, I believe that the text will be found to read not "Jesus said to them ""My wife....""; but rather, "Jesus said the them, ""My lesbian wife...."

And I was told this by the Archbishop of Canterbury. I swear.

Also time for the yearly classic “Jesus never claimed to be the Son of God” lie.

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

An ancient forgery, not a modern forgery. Truth has a hard time surviving at Harvard.

‘Jesus’ (Yeshu or Yeshua see Chronicles II 31:15) was a common name in those days.

Let's see... Should I believe the Bible... or the New York Times?

One is a work of fiction, created by men with a political agenda, and unsubstantiated by facts.

The other is The Word of God.

Written by a crack-pot. There have always been crack-pots and will always be crack-pots. This was written a long time ago by a crack-pot.

“Jesus didn’t really exist, wasn’t really crucified, wasn’t resurrected, but He had a wife...” < /liberal left >

Any Bible scholars or practicing Jews: Wouldn’t a rabbi have to have a wife to be taken seriously, or am I misunderstanding the practices back then?

Is there anything in this new papyrus about Jesus leaving the seat down or not taking out the garbage?

Knocking the Catholic religion seems to be common before Easter and Christmas. The gnostic gospels were thrown out because they were about 200-300 years after Jesus. So they were ancient, but it would be like me writing George Washington’s ‘autobiography’.

I heard this on the radio today coming home from work. I thought about it and said to myself “if this is true, what harm is there in a man, even a son of God, to know the normal ebb and flow of life, even that between a husband and a wife?”

I do think this science and this discovery might be propped up those with darker ulterior motives and their reasons may be myriad. But, it still wouldn’t change my thoughts and feelings regarding Jesus and what we know about him through historical resources, more specifically through the bible in all its forms.

Frankly, I just don’t understand the point of it all, myself.

Oh, for crying out loud...! Is it that time of year, again?

Does anyone not living under a rock (and especially after the execrable book/movie/cash-cow “The DaVinci Code”) really fail to remember that the Gnostic “Gospel of Judas” and “Gospel of Thomas” both portray Jesus having a “relationship” with Mary Magdalene?

(Irony, especially for the feminist lovers of “The DaVinci Code”: the “Gospel of Thomas” says that Jesus will “turn Mary Magdalene into a man, so that she may attain salvation, since women are not fit for eternal life”!)

It all comes down to what one believes to be true. There are a lot of writings from long ago that have been deciphered and rewritten over time. Sometimes you just have to pick the ones you believe to be true and take it on faith.

The people that wrote ancient words are not here to defend or prove them to be true.
