Jesus' "wife" redux

A scholar says the bit of papyrus is probably a fake ... but, if I had to guess, "probably" is not yet "certainly" and the sheer fun of toying with the notion that Jesus might have had a wife is too beguiling. The sociological, philosophical and economic ripples can nourish an almost giddy excitement in a realm that otherwise might slump into flat-beer, grimly-educated doldrums.

Did he have kids? Did he fuck for fun? And what impact does his lack of celibacy have on the whole woven tapestry called Christianity?

This is juicy.

But the papyrus is probably bogus....

Yum. Yum. Yum.
