Debunking the Gnostic 'Parchment: Jesus Couldn't Have Had a Wife Comments

Have we really regressed, after 4,000 years of Divine revelation, to seeing the Trinity the way the Greeks saw the gods, sneaking into human bedrooms disguised as humans, in order to impregnate human beings so as to created demi-gods, in the process committing adultery against their divine mates ?

    Is it not possible that this fragment was just some writing to ridicule the followers of Jesus at that time? In a thousand years those finding the writings of Dan Brown (The Da Vinci Code etc) would come to the same conclusion: Jesus was married! This piece of papyrus cannot tell the whole story. Scholars should endevour to find the whole writing before they fall into the trap of becoming heretical (if they ever believed in Our Lord Jesus Christ.) Those who do so are really ignorant of the Catholic Church's great Tradition. Thank you for such an article. The 'experts' should first read it before proposing any more erroneous ideas.

    I know this is simplistic, but I've always said that if Jesus had a wife it would have been detailed in the gospels. He was perfect and so was everything He did. If there was a ever a wife, then it would have been part of the faith from the beginning. Why would the gospel writers have left out a detail so essential? Suffice it to say that I've never struggled with the veracity of the claim.

    Actually was should search the internet and read the story of a repentent jesuit psychologist to understand the actual reason why this story is mooted. I am from India. If we ask a scientist whether it will rain in the after noon he will not give any answer. But they will teach you that 5 million years ago there was rain on earh, perhaps in the moon too. All this research turns to defy logic and hence humbug will be how we can name it. Jesus tells in the Bible, that people of this world do marry, but it is not so in the kingdom. Since Jesus declares that his kingdom is not of this world we can be assured that Jesus never married. In the eagerness to project the Catholic doctrine to be worldly we may have lost the distinction between the profane and the sacred and tried to discribe that sex in itself is sacred, we may have lost sound catholic docrtine. This is only a post conciliar syndrome. There is no evidence after all that Jesus is married, but there is enough evidence that Jesus did not marry, if we give least respect to logic and conscience. ,

    My understanding is that there is a second century parchment which says pay no attention to fourth century parchments.

    This is not so much blasphemy as fantasy.Jesus was a common name of the time. There is no other scripture or document to back it up. The Our Father is in Matthew 6 and repeated in Luke. Celibacy is a choice. Witnesses of the time in the Gospels refered to the apostles wives. If Jesus were married why not Him. This is just plain fantasy.
