* Finishing the thought, for Jesus' sake !

The Anti-Yale, Paul D. Keane, M. Div '80, M.A, M.Ed., has offered  a solution to the mystery regarding 'Jesus' wife'  raised  by a Harvard Divinity School scholar in an article (link below) in today's New York Times. 

Keane, a 1980 graduate of Yale Divinity School, with a master in divinity degree, says that the sentence rendered in Coptic is probably incomplete and may just as likely have read thusly: "Jesus said to them, 'My wife. . . she will be able to be my disciple. . [if and vhen I evah ghet married] ' " (to improvise on American  yiddish construction)   lol .

So endeth the lesson.


NOTE:  A friend of mine took this post seriously.  It is a SATIRE. 

Read Albert Schweitzer's The Quest of the Historical Jesus.  (Some have dubbed it The Quest of the Hysterical Jesus) .

There is absolutely no historical proof that "Jesus" (aka Joshua ben Joseph) ever existed.  

This entire  fascination with the 'wife'-of-Jesus-issue is like  the medieval conceit of counting the number of angels that can dance on the head of a pin.

I'll go back and add "lol" to my satire to make it clear.
