The idea that Mary Magdalene was Jesus’ consort certainly isn’t new. Apparently this “doctrine” was invented and taught by the Valentinian Gnostics, According to April D. DeConick, Professor of Biblical Studies at the Rice University, “the reason that their tradition remembered Mary in this way is because they believed that marriage was the sacred creative activity of God and God’s manifestations or Aeons. They also believed that their own human marriages were reflections - what they called “an image” - of the eternal marriages of the Aeons”.
The Valentinian Gnostics wrote the Gospel of Philip, which seems to suggest that Mary Magdalene was Jesus’ consort many, many years before that piece of fragment (which we know nothing about its authenticity) of Gospel that “suggests” Jesus was married was found.

When a blind man and one who sees are both together in darkness, they are no different from one another. When the light comes, then he who sees will see the light, and he who is blind will remain in darkness.”
The Gospel does not, however, explicitly use the word “wife” to Mary Magdalene, however it’s not very clear what the author means by “companion”. :shrug:
