Karen King Responds to ‘The Unbelievable Tale of Jesus’s Wife’ – Ariel Sabar – The Atlantic – Jun 16, 2016
The Harvard scholar says papyrus is probably a forgery.
For four years, Karen L. King, a Harvard historian of Christianity, has defended the so-called “Gospel of Jesus’s Wife” against scholars who argued it was a forgery. But Thursday, for the first time, King said the papyrus—which she introduced to the world in 2012—is a probable fake. She reached this conclusion, she said, after reading The Atlantic’s investigation into the papyrus’s origins, which appears in the magazine’s July/August issue and was posted to its website Wednesday night. “It tips the balance towards forgery,” she said.
