Real, fake, real, fake, a little scrap of papyrus written in Coptic has Jesus Christ, who made bachelorhood cool long before George Clooney, referring to “my wife”. That's a big deal.
In 2012, a respected Harvard professor, Karen King, brought the papyrus to worldwide attention.It is certainly old, and written badly enough that it seems authentic
, but that doesn't make it authentic. Lots of texts written outside canon make for all kinds of conclusions. But a lack of lineage is a bad sign in archeology and history.
And other documents also supposedly found along with it have turned out to be forgeries.
