The "Jesus Wife" papyrus

The “Jesus Wife” papyrus

A small piece of papyrus has gotten a lot of attention in the last few weeks because it makes some kind of reference to Jesus’ wife. There are a lot 0f questions about this document and not a lot of answers. Its dating is imprecise but it certainly dates to several hundred years after the time of Christ. We discuss these issues and more with Dana Harris, a professor of New Testament at the Trinity Evangelical Divinity School.
