A Curious Mind
Mark Goodacre recently pointed out an article identifying the owner of the so-called "Gospel of Jesus' Wife." The article in the Atlantic by Ariel Sabar entitled "The Unbelievable Tale of Jesus' Wife" is a fascinating expose on the life and mind of the owner of the controversial papyrus. It is a long read, but for those interested in the question of manuscript forgeries, this incredible story will be both entertaining and enlightening, as well as an appropriate warning to pay due attention to questions of provenance. Highly recommended.
