Vatican newspaper calls fragment referring to Jesus' wife 'a fake'

By Dan Gilgoff and Eric Marrapodi, CNN Belief Blog Co-Editors

(CNN) - The Vatican on Friday appeared to push back on a recently publicized piece of papyrus that appears to show an early Christian referring to Jesus' wife, with its newspaper calling the fragment “a fake.”

“Substantial reasons would lead us to conclude that the papyrus is actually a clumsy counterfeit,” the Vatican’s  newspaper, L'Osservatore Romano, said in a Friday editorial by the newspaper’s editor.

“In other words, in any case it is a fake,” wrote L'Osservatore Romano editor-in-chief Gian Maria Vian.

The fragment referring to Jesus wife was written in Coptic, a language used by Egyptian Christians, and says in part, "Jesus said to them, 'My wife ..."

The paper is generally thought to reflect the views of Vatican officials.

5 Questions and answers about Jesus’ “wife”

Harvard Divinity School professor Karen King announced the findings of the 1.5- by 3-inch honey-colored fragment earlier this month in Rome at the International Association for Coptic Studies.

King was quick to add this discovered text "does not, however, provide evidence that the historical Jesus was married," she wrote in a draft of her analysis of the fragment set to appear in the January edition of Harvard Theological Review.

"This fragment, this new piece of papyrus evidence, does not prove that (Jesus) was married, nor does it prove that he was not married,” King said in a conference call with reporters earlier in the month. “The earliest reliable historical tradition is completely silent on that.

“So we're in the same position we were before it was found,” she continued. “We don't know if he was married or not."

In the accounts of Jesus' life in the Bible, there is no mention of his marital status, while the accounts do mention Jesus' mother, father and siblings.

Opinion: What fascination with Jesus’ “wife” tells us

The four Gospels – Matthew, Mark, Luke and John – tell the story of Jesus' birth and early childhood then skip to his short, three-year ministry before detailing his death and resurrection.

In its Friday editorial, the Vatican newspaper took aim at what it said was a media campaign to spread word of the papyrus despite questions about its authenticity.

“American media outlets had been alerted, a preventive press conference by Karen L. King held to prepare a global scoop which was immediately put into question by the experts,” the paper said.

    Jesus Christ is the way, the truth and the life (John 14:6) and neither is there salvation in any other name under heaven given among men, whereby we must be saved (Acts 4:12). The Jesus figure portrayed in the above article is not the true and living God that came into this world in the name of Jesus Christ to deliver people from the spirit of this world (1 John 5:4).. Please read the article ‘Repent’, listed on our website http://www.aworlddeceived.ca and learn what it means. It signifies a lot more than what by nature you have been made to believe. Are those that are referred to as ‘Christians’ by the media really the followers of Jesus Christ or do they follow after a false Christ (Matthew 24:24; 2 Cor. 11:13-15; GaL.4:8) and why is there so much division amongst religions? Please read on. The above mentioned article by Dan Gilgoff and Eric Marrapodi is a good example how distorted things have become in society with the media industry as the main culprit. They are spiritually blind and separated from the true and living God and the natural man receiveth not the things of the Spirit of God: for they are foolishness unto him, neither can he know them, because they are spiritually discerned (1 Cor. 2:15). In order for anyone to be able to understand the Word of God they must repent and turn from darkness to light and from the power of Satan unto God (Acts 26:18). Dan Gilgoff and Eric Marrapodi do not know what spirit they are of (Luke 9:55). The Word of God is not to be interpreted (2 Peter 1:20) and it is the discerner of every thought and intent of the heart (Hebrews 4:12). The local media, including CNN, Fox and your local TV stations and newspapers are a very important element of social and political behavior, as society is shaped by what it sees, hears and reads and it is conditioned by the events that influence the mind of every person. You reap what you sow. To allow anyone to be directed by public opinion is dangerous because most public opinion is the view of the media. If the media does not like something, their bias taints information getting to the public, and this forms public opinion. Public opinion is never based on research and facts. The public uses the media for its sole source of information and for this reason social behavior will continue to deteriorate and wax worse and worse (2 Timothy 3:13).

If the media does not like something, their bias taints information getting to the public, and this forms public opinion. Public opinion is never based on research and facts. The public uses the media for its sole source of information and for this reason social behavior will continue to deteriorate and wax worse and worse (2 Timothy 3:13).

    Well, the Vatican is the authority who decides who gets to be a saint or not based on whether a mere mortal prayed to some dead pope and that pope bestowed a miracle. The vatican decides on what magic is real and what magic is not real. Who better to make the call on this one.

    The above mentioned article by Dan Gilgoff and Eric Marrapodi is a good example how distorted things have become in society with the media industry as the main culprit.

    They are spiritually blind and separated from the true and living God and the natural man receiveth not the things of the Spirit of God: for they are foolishness unto him, neither can he know them, because they are spiritually discerned (1 Cor. 2:15).

    In order for anyone to be able to understand the Word of God they must repent and turn from darkness to light and from the power of Satan unto God (Acts 26:18). Dan Gilgoff and Eric Marrapodi do not know what spirit they are of (Luke 9:55).

    The Word of God is not to be interpreted (2 Peter 1:20) and it is the discerner of every thought and intent of the heart (Hebrews 4:12).

    The local media, including CNN, Fox and your local TV stations and newspapers are a very important element of social and political behavior, as society is shaped by what it sees, hears and reads and it is conditioned by the events that influence the mind of every person. You reap what you sow.

    To allow anyone to be directed by public opinion is dangerous because most public opinion is the view of the media. If the media does not like something, their bias taints information getting to the public, and this forms public opinion. Public opinion is never based on research and facts. The public uses the media for its sole source of information and for this reason social behavior will continue to deteriorate and wax worse and worse (2 Timothy 3:13).

    For a better understanding of the role of the media we invite you to read the articles ‘Influence of the Media’ and ‘CNN Belief Blog – Sign of the Times’, listed on our website http://www.aworlddeceived.ca

    The media does not provide accurate information on ‘Religion’ as it continues to ignore the truth and the history of deceptions (John 14:17). They only report how they want you to hear things. They have created the big chasm that now exists without offering any solutions.

    Consider the truth about Catholicism, Islam, Mormonism, Judaism, Evangelicals and Christianity and all other religions and ask yourself the following question.

    Are so-called Catholics, Muslims, Mormons, Israelites and Evangelicals and all those that call themselves ‘Christians’ followers of the teachings of the Lord Jesus Christ and the Word of God, or do they follow after an image of a false god and a false Christ (Matthew 24:24; 2 Cor. 11:13-15; Gal. 4:8)?

      You know as well as I do that the riots in the Middle East are due to poverty and years of oppression, not religion... or maybe you really don't understand that. Maybe you are so convinced by the media portrayal of evil Islam that you think forget that Egypt's riots were mobbed by christians as well as muslims, and that the muslims in Libya who rioted were countered by other muslims who risked their lives - literally - to help as many inside escape as they could.

      Islam is not the reason these riots happen - it is poverty and oppression. That's why all riots happen, even in America.

    I'll ask all this question. Why is this Payprus just now being brought to our attention?
    The story of Jesus and Mary Magdalene being husband and wife is as old as the new testament. Believe what you may, there are so many other stories about Jesus Christ that were destroyed or are just being found today. Many of the stories of Christ were taken back to the Vatican during the third/forth centuries. There has been so much of the story coming through the Vatican, that has been changed to fit their story. There is a story about the De Vinci painting of the last supper that the man on Jesus' right is Mary Magdalene and not John. This was picked up by Dan Brown in the De Vinci code.

    September 29, 2012 at 6:37 pm |
    • Edwin

      It is brought to light now because a scholar recently purchased the scroll fragment from a dealer. Before that, she didn't have it.

      Yes, the story is not new, but the evidence is. And in spite of what the church says, every expert so far thinks it is genuine. The likelihood is that it was part of a larger Gospel that is no longer used. It might or might not be true, but it isn't likely a fake.

    Why is it that the atheists in here seem to be the most hateful people? I have encountered every level of contempt and hatred
    from simply laughing at Christian beliefs to wishing all of us would die, and they say that WE are hateful. I will never understand this, and yet we are expected to forgive them and turn the other cheek. It seems that God wants a lot from us, a real hell of a lot.
    In all fairness, not all atheists are like that. I have friends I grew up with who are commited atheists but they are not hateful to me or anyone else. Is it asking so much from the rest of them to be civil? I could be just as nasty as they are, but I choose not to be.
    There is a difference between being partisan and just plain being uncivilized, and most of the atheists commenting here have crossed the line. Some of them are worse than Muslim extremists in publicly wishing death on those who do not believe as they
    do. I suppose it cannot be helped since they have the same freedom to express their contempt and hatred as anyone else, but
    I implore those who believe in God not to stoop to this level. The rest of the world is watching and the moral high ground is ours to take or to lose. We need expend no real effort as these people will show their true colors if we simply let them.

I have met real Christians who truly do try to love their fellow man but that is not the case with many and it grows worse every day. As far as the Vatican goes...yes, I can believe that they call the papyrus a fake...how else could they explain how they have treated women for so long....they are happy with barefoot and pregnant...and subservient

      September 29, 2012 at 6:33 pm |
    • bananaspy

      I suppose we see the world through different lenses, friend. Most of the hateful comments I receive online are from Christians, who are quick to point out the eternal suffering I'm guaranteed for not choosing their one (of thousands of possible) god. To make it worse, I see new articles to drudge through everyday about how Christians are trying to force schools to teach Intelligent Design despite its abhorrent lack of evidence, prevent gays from committing to marriage, protesting funerals of dead soldiers (whether you like it or not, Westboro Baptist members are Christians, even if they are extremists), and attempting to strip women's rights for religious tolerance.

      So if we atheists seem to be particularly nasty, perhaps it's because we're sick and tired of this. Many of us just want to live our lives without interfering with the lives of others and, just as importantly, without being interfered. Instead, we're constantly lambasted over our choice to think logically and ask for evidence over faith. I don't stoop to the level of Christians, but many of them sure are trying hard to force me there.

      Just so those of you who responded with anger to my post about atheists being particularly nasty in here will understand, I NEVER said that all Christians are perfect. I'm sorry if it came across that way, but that is not what I meant to happen. There
      are hypocritical people in any religion, and it would be untruthful to deny that some Christians judge others even though Jesus
      commanded us not to. But is it necessary for atheists to be so hateful and uncivilized as to wish death to all Christians?
