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.
