"Gospel of Jesus' wife" fragment is a fake




As I have stated before, this papyrus is a hoax. The L'Osservatore Romano which is the Vatican's newspaper has commented on the recent news regarding Jesus having a wife. Editor Gian Maria Vian had this to say: 
"Substantial reasons would lead one to conclude that the papyrus is indeed a clumsy forgery,... it is a fake."

Many in the academic world were skeptical to begin with when the news of this papyrus surfaced.
I write more about this find here:  http://sacerdotvs.blogspot.com/2012/09/the-gospel-of-jesus-wife.html
