(NDJ) – A fourth century piece of Papyrus may well change the way the bible was written. The document suggests that Jesus Christ was most definitely married.

The Catholic church has always denied that Jesus had a female companion or a wife, but this ancient sheet of paper written in Egyptian Coptic Script, confirms His martial status.
Karen King, a United States professor in Theology introduced the Papyrus during a convention in Rome.The writing on the tiny paper reads: “Jesus said to them: ‘My Wife’…”
Dan Brown, author of the 2003 bestseller ‘The Da Vinci Code’, has always maintained that Jesus was married to Maria Magdalene and the two had children together.
King said in a news release from Harvard Divinity School: “Christian tradition has long held that Jesus was not married, even though no reliable historical evidence exists to support that claim”.
“This new gospel doesn’t prove that Jesus was married, but it tells us that the whole question only came up as part of vociferous debates about sexuality and marriage. From the very beginning, Christians disagreed about whether it was better not to marry, but it was over a century after Jesus’ death before they began appealing to Jesus’ marital status to support their positions.”
More scientific tests will be conducted to ensure the document is authentic. The tests include verifying the ink is from the same time period as the Papyrus.
The tiny paper belongs to a collector who wishes to remain anonymous and asked King to analyse it and translate the writing for him.
