The Gospel of Jesus’ Wife
I seem to be arriving late to the discussion on the fragmentary Coptic manuscript that has been dubbed the Gospel of Jesus' Wife. Since I am not a Coptologist, I have little to add to what has been said so far (Jim Davila and Mark Goodacre offer useful introductions and roundups of media and blog posts), except to say that I share Jim's skepticism. The manuscript also doesn't look "right"–it is fragmentary yet is carefully cut, the script and penmanship is more crude than anything I have ever seen (though, again, I'm no Coptologist). I am eager to hear what Alin Suciu will say on his blog–he has already stated on facebook that he thinks it is a fake.
