Rome, Italy––In what many were touting “The Gospel of Jesus’ Wife,” the recently discovered, 4th century papyrus found by a historian at Harvard Divinity School seemed to shed light on an age old debate on whether Jesus ever married. The papyrus, no larger than a business card, contains the phrase, “Jesus said to them, ‘My wife…'” But it is now being reported that a second, smaller piece of papyrus has been unearthed not far from the first. The words, in small and fading black letters, seem a continuation from the first fragment, and contain the phrase, “…is the Church. Case closed.” No word yet if any more of the papyrus exists, but researchers at the university say they are hopeful.
