One Final Observation on the ‘Wife of Jesus’ Fragment

It strains credulity to belive that of an entire document, however long it originally was, the only portion preserved in near pristine, incredibly legible condition is the credit card sized segment which just happens to mention ‘Jesus’s wife…’

And this from an anonymous source. Has the academy set aside its well known healthy skepticism for another object in the family tree of the ‘Secret Gospel of Mark’?

Could it be legitimately ancient? Sure anything is possible. But that so many are accepting it as such without knowing its origins is just downright troubling.

    Academics bear responsibility for these attempts to present before the media an object which has not been peer reviewed nor c-14 dated and I’m sure it will ‘disappear’ for a short period until a buyer can be found.
