The article states the analysis of this slip of papaya with the Coptic writing will be published in January. Is this a new gospel? Does it provide any credible evidence to Jesus' martial status?

The article is pretty good, giving a good overview of what this may or may not mean.

"Four words on a previously unknown papyrus fragment provide the first evidence that some early Christians believed Jesus had been married, Harvard Professor Karen King told the 10th International Congress of Coptic Studies today."

There is some speculation that Jesus married Mary Magdalene. Dan Brown's The DaVinci Code is a fiction book that explores that idea.

From http://www.sciencedaily.com...

"But, King notes, it was not until around 200 that there is the earliest extant claim that Jesus did not marry, recorded by Clement of Alexandria. He wrote of Christians who claimed that marriage is fornication instituted by the devil, and says people should emulate Jesus in not marrying, King said. A decade or two later, she said, Tertullian of Carthage in North Africa declared that Jesus was "entirely unmarried," and Christians should aim for a similar condition."

Well that's one sure fire way to go extinct as a culture! Unbelievably ridiculous....
