HISTORIAN SEEKS AND FINDS EVIDENCE OF THE WIFE OF JESUS IN EFFORT TO DISCREDIT CHRISTIANITY
September 18 2012
Cambridge, MA – One of the key components of the Christian faith has been, almost from the start, the piety and veracity of the person at the centre of the faith. Jesus’ life has been at the heart of the religion, which boasts more than two million followers, from the very beginning and despite many changes in the belief system and the world that has not changed.
The core of that belief of course depends on a very old and very manipulated set of documents that in many ways are clearly false or at least allegorical, something just about everyone who follows the faith now feels.
There are some truths, though, that are very basic and fundamental to the system of belief and cannot be, again according to believers, refuted in any way shape or form. Much of that revolves around the life of the man at the centre, Jesus Christ, and the life he lived. Now though all of that may have been thrown into flux with the discovery of a new document that refers to Jesus’ wife, to Jesus actually mentioning his wife. Now that document will be unveiled, presumably in an effort to expose the lie of Christianity and discredit the faith forever.
“This fragment suggests that some early Christians had a tradition that Jesus was married. There was, we already know, a controversy in the second century over whether Jesus was married, caught up with a debate about whether Christians should marry and have sex,” said professor Karen L. King who will present the document in Rome, the heart of the Christian faith.
The document dates from the 4th century, long after Christ is believed to have died and been resurrected which of course may just be a story now that this other lie has been uncovered.
It’s believed that many people will just dismiss the document out of hand because they don’t want anything to interfere with their faith.
“This is certainly interesting, at least for people who study religion. For people who just blindly follow their faith it’s really only going to make them angry and call for people’s deaths but for the people who actually study the way faith works the way it progresses and evolves this is a fascinating piece,” said Scrape TV Religion analyst Bertram Gas. “Of course the people who don’t study are a lot louder than everyone else and very insecure about their faith so I’m sure Professor King will be hated and possibly receive a lot of death threats for finding this thing.”
It’s not believed that King had any had in creating the document as it was written 1500 years before she was born.
“Hopefully people don’t get too worked about this and start firebombing places or sending anthrax or anything. It really has more to do with the people who wrote it and what they believed than it does with the truth of the story. That’s kind of what faith is after all,” continued Gas. “Don’t say that to the dedicated people though. They are likely just going get angry and when those people get angry they hurt people, especially their brains. It’s hard to argue with those kinds of people.”
The document doesn’t say who Jesus was married to or whether or not she received his estate when he died which of course would have been complicated by his resurrection.
