Jesus had a Wife.

Eine Historikerin aus Harvard hat ein (wohl authentisches) Stück Papyrus identifiziert, auf dem geschrieben steht, dass Jesus eine Frau hatte. Die Kirche wird dieses lächerliche Detail natürlich ignorieren, aber kann sich der denkfähige Teil der Menschheit jetzt mal bitte darauf einigen: Jesus hatte 'ne Frau, war nichts weiter als ein ziemlich weltlicher Revolutionsführer, Maria war keine Jungfrau und es gibt keinen Gott.

A historian of early Christianity at Harvard Divinity School has identified a scrap of papyrus that she says was written in Coptic in the fourth century and contains a phrase never seen in any piece of Scripture: “Jesus said to them, ‘My wife ...’ ”

The faded papyrus fragment is smaller than a business card, with eight lines on one side, in black ink legible under a magnifying glass. Just below the line about Jesus having a wife, the papyrus includes a second provocative clause that purportedly says, “she will be able to be my disciple.”

The finding was made public in Rome on Tuesday at the International Congress of Coptic Studies by Karen L. King, a historian who has published several books about new Gospel discoveries and is the first woman to hold the nation’s oldest endowed chair, the Hollis professor of divinity.
