Did Jesus have a wife?

Ever so often, someone discovers some ancient text related to Christianity, and the media go mad with it, and declare that all of Christianity is now undermined.  Easier to not find out anything about the text, to ignore the actual research being made about it, and not bother to find out anything about Christianity.

Then at a popular level people reading it can declare with confidence that the gospels have been disproved etc, etc.

So the Daily Mail declares new proofs that Jesus was married, whilst the New York Times is more circumspect!  Which shows you more about how the Daily Mail sensationalise.

Peter Williams at Tyndale House, has this great post about what was really found and what it really might mean, and why Christians don’t need to throw their bibles away just yet.
