Harvard Magazine: Newly discovered gospel mentions Jesus' 'wife'

Published: Tuesday, Sept. 18 2012 12:00 a.m. MDT

Our take: A newly discovered Christian gospel has Jesus referring to his wife. The recently discovered piece of papyrus addresses issues of family and discipleship and was this week in Rome to a conference of Coptic scholars.

At 7 p.m. this evening in Rome (1 p.m. EST), Hollis professor of divinity Karen L. King revealed to a conference of Coptic scholars the existence of a newly discovered Christian gospel. In the fragmentary text, Jesus refers unmistakably to "my wife."
