The “Gospel Of Jesus Wife” — Authentic Ancient Document And Not A “Fake”?

pap_junkA faded fragment of papyrus known as the “Gospel of Jesus’s Wife,” which caused an uproar when unveiled by a Harvard Divinity School historian in 2012, has been tested by scientists who conclude in a journal published on Thursday that the ink and papyrus are very likely ancient, and not a modern forgery.

Skepticism about the tiny scrap of papyrus has been fierce because it contained a phrase never before seen in any piece of Scripture: “Jesus said to them, ‘My wife…’ ” Too convenient for some, it also contained the words “she will be able to be my disciple,” a clause that inflamed the

The papyrus fragment has now been analyzed by professors of electrical engineering, chemistry and biology at Columbia University, Harvard University and the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, who reported that it resembles other ancient papyri from the fourth to the eighth centuries. ….full article:  here           video is found here

I’ll be simple and direct:  as a Christian, I can say without any qualifications or doubts that this “ancient, not fake” document is bunk, triple times over.  It might well be “ancient” but that by no means proves it truthful or authentic according to the Bible.

The Bible, God’s Word to human kind, is authentic to the smallest detail.  Besides being a “religious” document, it’s historical  masterpiece and much more.  It is also the inerrant Word of God, inerrant defined as: “freedom from error or untruths.”  Unfortunately, a growing number of (so called) Christians dismiss that as untrue.  It’s not.

Therefore it’s impossible for Jesus, the living Son of God, the God- man, Savior and Creator, to have been “married”.  And yet on the video, the “reverend” (who should go back to seminary for a refresher course, Paul Raushenbush)  seems unable or unwilling to take a stand on the baloney of the “ancient but not fake” document.  That makes him a prime example of what’s wrong with the ‘church’ of 2014.  It’s filled of false doctrine, false teachers and literal heresy. Perhaps Rev. Raushenbush was simple to intimidate to speak the truth, but if that were the case, he should have declined the interview.

As for the ‘document’, it might well be ancient as the “scholars” have claimed, but it is a “fake” in that it’s a lie.  I have no doubt there are all sorts of authentic, aged documents floating around that have nary a glimmer of truth nor fact in them.  This ‘gospel of Jesus wife’ is simple another one.  All to persuade humanity that Jesus the Christ was not and is not, Who He claimed Himself to be.  Praise and thank God for every soul who knows the Truth.

    Sinful mankind doesn’t like the idea of a Holy and Just God, much-less One who dies for them, proving they’re not good enough – don’t measure up to God’s standards, nor can they! We’re born with a spirit (from Adam) that’s alienated from the Source of LIFE. So … I agree with you! Thanks.
    As you’ve read in Scripture, natural man is in enmity with God: Genesis 3:15 “And I will put enmity between thee and the woman, and between thy seed and her seed; it shall bruise thy head, and thou shalt bruise his heel. Ephesians 2:16 And that he might reconcile both unto God in one body by the cross, having slain the enmity thereby: Romans 1:25 Who changed the truth of God into a lie, and worshipped and served the creature more than the Creator, who is blessed for ever. Amen.”
    All of the unsaved man/women are blind to God’s Truth, and enslaved to the sinful nature that’s based on the lie and the way of the fallen world. Only ‘hearing’ God’s Word wakes any of us up … if we choose to hear!

      The devil/ those controlled by the ‘sin nature’, hate the truth. It can be difficult enough for some (so called?) believers to accept the Bible as absolute Truth. I know those who object to “7 day creation” and I wonder, how to argue with God’s Word in the first paragraphs of the Bible and believe any of it?

        Yep, if one doesn’t get the ‘Introduction’ right “In the beginning God …” the rest of the story doesn’t make sense … esp. to a blind heart.

    Hi, I’ve left a couple of comment and you’ve not posted them – I was wondering if they’re being blocked (as spam) – this is a test comment to find out! If you’ve chosen ‘not to post them’ that’s a different deal. Just checking. Thanks.

      No! For whatever reason, occasionally, they will ‘auto not approve’…. when I notice comments, then I give them “Approval”. I don’t Block unless something is obscene. Sorry for the confusion… as I said, not sure whey they’re not automatically Approved.

        Appreciate your reply and explanation. I wonder if those comments are in your spam filter? Interesting. The ones not approved had some ‘Scripture verses’ that I thought applied to the post article topic, and connecting statement to tie it together. If the comments were “auto blocked” it would be interesting to know why … plus how many other comments aren’t (possibly) getting thru to you. Quite the Policing going on! Thanks again – keep up the good work! 😊

        well, by golly, they were in Spam, which is odd since the rest were ‘approved’ or ‘auto approved’…. wonder if WordPress has a problem. Sorry for the delay!

"Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction. We didn't pass it to our children in the bloodstream. It must be fought for, protected, and handed on for them to do the same, or one day we will spend our sunset years telling our children and our children's children what it was once like in the United States where men were free."
