#1 Incomplete translation. It actually reads: "Jesus said to them, 'take my wife, please'".

#2 Wonder what the 'findings' will be when only the fiction section of libraries are unearth two thousand years from now.

#3 Its like when someone suggests a different possibilty for let's say ancient Egypt and the pros say "oh, but we have this inscription that says ......". Like the ancients never engaged in propaganda. And I'm not talking about aliens did it and similiar crap

#5 Archaeologists claim an enlargement
Of ancient Arabian parchment
Reveals ball and chain
Behind Allah, quite plain,
Concealed in a black sack-like garment.

#6 A coy dealer of antiquities
A lay scholar, if you please
Came upon a papyrus
From the land of Osiris
To set sacred hearts to seize.

Why is it, he sadly asked
That poor Jesus was said to be tasked
To a life full of omen
Without a fine woman
In whose light he would have gladly basked?

#8 Well, if he had a wife to keep him from doing crazy things, he'd probably wouldn't have ended on a cross.

#9 Maybe the biggest clue that it was a forgery was thar it said "on June 21, 32 AD, Jesus said ..."

#10 Some religious scholars believe he was married to Mary Magdeline. She was the only woman known to travel with him. They believe the story where he turned water into wine at the wedding where his mother was ordering the servants around was his wedding. I don't know, I wasn't invited.

#12 Did Mary of Magdala clan have beacoup cavalry + warriors???

IMO iff Jesus as a "descendant/heir of David"
[Saul?] had political, ethnic, + familial right to claim the throne of Judea, by extension his relatives should have had some kind of potent military arm to back his claim up - ditto as per the Magdalene whose clan's own alleged claim to the throne of David helped justify or validate's Jesus'??? This was occurring at time when the so-called Zealots were gaining in numbers + influence which would decades later manifest itself in open armed rebellion agz Rome.

my two cents.
