Jesus 'Wife' Papyrus Hits Another Snag
Diana Chandler, Baptist Press
Professor Karen King has hit another snag in her efforts to publicize a papyrus fragment on which she says Jesus refers to a "wife," as the Harvard Theological Review has postponed publication of her anticipated article, awaiting the results of further testing.
The Review was to publish in January a major article aimed at answering questions raised about the authenticity of the fragment, after King announced last September its discovery at an international conference of biblical scholars in Rome.
