    A piece of papyrus has been found and authenticated through Harvard with a statement by Jesus stating "my wife". It has been called the gospel of Jesus' wife.

    This does not appear in the Bible, as so many ancient texts don't, but it seems to indicate that Jesus was married and likely engaged in marital intercourse.

    To me, it helps the story of Jesus, but to many, it creates much conflict.

    Does it matter to your personal faith if Jesus was married, as this ancient artifact seems to indicate?

    Does it matter to you if it is actually sacred text?

    I believe the text to be authentic, and also believe that it helps my view of Jesus.

    He was a man, a human man, and I would expect that He found women to be attractive, and have no problem with Him being married.

    So you have blind faith in the authenticity of the text being of God?

    The same blind faith in the books of the Bible that were chosen by men.

    And the books that could have been in the Bible, but were excluded by men.

    The Bible does not tell the entire story, because men were involved, unqualified men.

    I think even less of this text than you think of the Bible.

    Jesus was likely married and had sex.

    It is relevant.

    Link?
    Evidence?
    Corroboration?
    Peer review?

    Is that not counterproductive to faith? 😛

    Have you considered that the wife of Jesus... his bride... is the church? Why do we always want to diminish who Jesus is and make him like us instead of the other way around? Food for thought.

    Well, if it was on a papyrus then it must be true.
