It is difficult to know what this "discovery" really means. Has this been accurately translated, did the term "wife" have a broader or different meaning in this time. This isn't meant to be sarcastic, but what about handwriting?

Note that the writing dates from the 4th century. In the same way ‘The DaVinci Code’ is a 21st century document that claims Jesus had a wife. Anyone can write anything hundreds of years after Christ was on the earth, doesn’t make it true! :slight_smile:
