    BOSTON — A Harvard University professor on Tuesday unveiled a fourth-century fragment of papyrus she said is the only existing ancient text quoting Jesus explicitly referring to having a wife.


    Karen King, an expert in the history of Christianity, said the text contains a dialogue in which Jesus refers to "my wife," whom he identifies as Mary. King says the fragment of Coptic script is a copy of a gospel, probably written in Greek in the second century.


    King helped translate and unveiled the tiny fragment at a conference of Coptic experts in Rome. She said it doesn't prove Jesus was married but speaks to issues of family and marriage that faced Christians.


    They speak of a wife but there is no proof one exisited ..

    You will be waiting a long time , I think he would have returned along time ago if he was coming back at all ...

    it is not mentioned of jesus having a child so that would mean he was not married . as in those times you were only married if a child was born. marrage was not created till much later under the roman laws . other than that it was refered to as husbandry . or the rearing of young be it child or of beasts.
