For those who continue to pay attention to the unfolding narrative of the Gospel of Jesus’ Wife:
– Christian Askeland has written On the Gospel of Jesus’ Wife and he has recorded himself providing a talk on “some the key peculiarities of this manuscript which potentially support the forgery hypothesis.” (HT: Evangelical Textual Criticism) See below:
– Mark Goodacre, Gospel of Jesus’ Wife: last line also from Thomas
– Hugo Lundhang and Alin Suciu, On the So-Called Gospel of Jesus’ Wife: Preliminary Thoughts and A Peculiar Dialectal Feature in the Gospel of Jesus’ Wife, Line 6
– New Addition: Timo S. Paananen, Another “Fake” or Just a Problem of Method: What Francis Watson’s Analysis Does to Papyrus Koln 255? (HT: Exploring Our Matrix)
You can find updates on this blog (especially the post The Harvard Theological Journal, the Gospel of Jesus’ Wife, and Karen L. King’s rejected (or not rejected) paper), the blog of James McGrath (Exploring Our Matrix), the blog of Larry Hurtado (Larry Hurtado Blog), the blog of the aforementioned Mark Goodacre (NT Blog), and several other solid blogs.
Two good articles from the broader media (at this point) include Lisa Wangsness’ Scholars begin to weigh in on the ‘Gospel of Jesus’ Wife’ for the Boston Globe and Jaweed Kaleem’s ‘Jesus Wife’ Research Leads to Suspicion that Artifact is Fake for the Huffington Post.
