More on the Recent Coptic Fragment
There may be more evidence pointing to the Coptic fragment concerning "Jesus' wife," that it is a forgery. And what gave it away? I rare transcription error found in the first line that otherwise only occurs in a modern interlinear edition of the Gospel of Thomas. See discussion by Mark Goodacre here.
I have a Ph.D. in Religion from Columbia University. I am currently a visiting instructor in the Department of Philosophy and Religion at the University of Mississippi. My research focuses on the New Testament and emergent Christian interactions with ancient Judaism in their Greco-Roman and ancient Near Eastern environments.
