"Jesus said to them, 'My wife…'"

by Rev. A. J. Iovine

Did you happen to come across this story in today’s New York Times? It is most assuredly going to provide lots of theological discussion.

My initial impression of “Jesus said to them, ‘My wife…'” is simple: Who cares? Does it change the fact Jesus humbled Himself and came to earth, born of Mary, lived, preached, healed, spoke, suffered, died, rose from the dead, ascended into heaven for us?

No.

Do I believe the papyrus does say that? I leave it up to the scholars who know Coptic.

But who says that the writing on the papyrus is correct?

I will stick with the biblical Jesus account.
