Whoa, stop what you are doing, cause you have to read the lengthy article in The Atlantic by Ariel Sabar on “The Unbelievable Tale of Jesus’ Wife.” Sabar tracks down the author of The Gospel of Jesus’ Wife and it is a cracker of a tale. It has forgery, porn, shonky businessmen, Egyptian museums, bruised egos, the east European Stasi, and a whole lot more. Truth really is stranger than fiction.
It is a 30 minute read, but well worth it!
A brilliant piece of investigative journalism.
Someone invite that guy to an SBL session!
This does note bode very well for Harvard Divinity School.
