This figures to be my last update on this, at least until after November’s academic conferences. I’m bored with it.
Here’s some item updates on the alleged (but now suspected by many to be fake) fragment that has Jesus referring to his wife. (In case you’re late to this party, here’s a good overview post from New Testament textual critic Dan Wallace). Of particular note is the last one, by Christian Askeland, a Coptologist I happen to know through email due to my day job. It’s an interesting video demonstration (for the non-specialist) of the fragments odd features that has led to suspicion of fakery.
My disappointment with The Guardian (from Mark Goodacre’s blog; deals with the archeo-witless media)
The Gospel of Jesus’ Wife Latest (also from Goodacre’s NT blog; updates of the issue)
