So you want a married Jesus???

I was struggling to find a title for this post.

The Evangelical Textual Criticism blog has a nice round up of where things stand related to the once infamous  and now largely forgotten Coptic fragment that purports to demonstrate evidence that belief in a married Jesus circulated among some early Christian groups.

Admittedly, part of me wants to point out that they kinda-sorta swiped the title of the post from one I published in January 2013...then I read my blog address and realize the irony of the whole situation.

It still seems, all things considered, Karen King let herself be deluded by the prospect of a major discovery and landing the associated print and television features. She has and will continue to fight for the authenticity of the fragment - her reputation depends on it. As it is, she has devoted too much time to this fragment and any hope of salvaging her reputation rides on successfully moving beyond it.

Meanwhile...
