Did Jesus have a Wife?
1. I dont think Jesus wrote anything. 2. If he did, the only wife eh has to the Church, as spoken in Revelation. And maybe Mary means Marry, as he will Marry the Church.

Dr. Karen King, of Harvard Divinity School, announced that she had located a 4th-century papyrus fragment of a special scroll referring to the supposed fact that Jesus had a wife.I watched and recorded the segment on at least four television stations and called it up on the web. And what else do I know> It boils down to these questions: Is the 4th century fragment of papyrus genuine? Who are the Coptics anyway since it was written in Coptic instead of Greek? (They were Egyptian Christians -- I love this irony --since Coptics were also in the news this week since it is alleged that they may have raised the money for the trailer for the Mohammed film which has set up turmoil around the world.) How did this Harvard professor get her hands on the papyrus? The article has set off mounds of controversy and will require years of research on antiquities and documentation. The text contains a dialogue in which Jesus refers to "my wife" and he identifies her as Mary. Another question might be whether Jesus had women disciples. The answer to that question could cause ripples in the Church of today!
