For those unfamiliar with the source (or the rest) of that quote, you might want to go here for a refresher.
It's a verse that came to mind as I read this morning with satisfaction what's coming out of the USA Today:
The Smithsonian Channel has postponed plans to broadcast a documentary on the discovery of a "Jesus wife" papyrus that a Vatican newspaper declares is a probable fake.
A promo for the documentary The Gospel of Jesus's Wife on the channel's website refers to the "damaged and fragile" ancient papyrus as "one of the most significant discoveries of all time."
While the website still carries the description of the program, a small note to the right says it is "not currently airing."
A spokesman says the broadcast has been postponed "until the text undergoes further tests," according toThe Washington Post.
The purported fourth-century fragment consists of eight lines of black ink, written in Coptic, which include the phrase. "Jesus said to them, 'My wife ...'"
Below it is what The New York Times calls "a second provocative clause" that reportedly says, "she will be able to be my disciple."
Yet another lame attempt to smear foundational Christian beliefs falls short, the Gates of Hell not prevailing... as some wise and unmarried young man once predicted.
