‘Gospel of Jesus’s Wife’ likely isn’t a modern forgery, scientists claim

Lead researcher Karen King acknowledges that her findings don’t prove that Jesus had a wife, though she believes it does indicate that early Christians were discussing issues related to sex and marriage. In her view, the document proves that “women who are mothers and wives can be disciples of Jesus,” though not everyone is convinced of its authenticity.

Fascinating stuff, but I’m not convinced that Jesus’ marital status would have any impact on His divinity or teachings.
