Wedding bells for Jesus?


A fragment of 4th century Egyptian papyrus including incomplete lines of script made the headlines today, above the fold, in the Boston Globe:
HINT OF A MARRIED JESUS
 
Would that the many who will jump on this scrap of script might read the complete gospels with equal credulity and follow up with the headline:  
HINT OF A REDEEMING JESUS  

But that ain't gonna happen!

Shades of The Da Vinci Code...

For a reasoned take on all of this I recommend this by Michael Peppard.

UPDATE! Yet another helpful perspective: from James Martin, SJ in the NYT
