Historian says piece of papyrus refers to Jesus’ wife

This morning brings really an interesting question not only to me but to many Christians and Muslims alike and it must provoke a lot of further questions and discussions. Like all other Muslims, The Ahmadiyya Community (declared not- Muslim in 1974 in Pakistan) has always held the view that Jesus was a human being, a prophet of God and as such he married as guide model for others, but Christian can never think of Jesus got married as it is threatening to the Church.

Together with “The Da Vinci Code” this very piece of papyrus could lead to total fall of Christianity for those who think over in depth.

A historian of early Christianity at Harvard Divinity School has identified a papyrus fragment in Coptic language that she says contains the first known statement saying explicitly that Jesus was married. The fragment also refers to a female disciple. This discovery likely to reignite debate over Mary Magdalene and women’s role in Christianity.
