‘Gospel of Jesus’s Wife’ likely isn’t a modern forgery, scientists claim

A controversial document that suggests that Jesus of Nazareth had a wife is most likely ancient and not a modern forgery, according to a paper published today in the Harvard Theological Review. The papyrus fragment, known as the Gospel of Jesuss Wife, has been the subject of widespread debate since it was discovered in 2012 because it includes the phrase Jesus said to them, My wife…. It also mentions that she will be able to be my disciple, which led some to question whether women should be allowed to become Catholic priests. The Vatican has previously said that the document is most likely a modern forgery, but scientists from Columbia University, Harvard, and the Massachusetts Institute of Technology say their analysis strongly suggests that it is indeed part of an ancient manuscript and that it wasnt edited or tampered with. There is absolutely no evidence for that, Timothy Swager, an MIT chemistry professor who worked on the project, tells the New York Times.
