Gnostic Nonsense

So, if you haven't heard, some more Gnostic papyri has been found, and surprise surprise, it seems to say that Jesus had a wife.  Read more here.

Discoveries like this are anything but new, though they are always touted to be of great importance.  If this scrap of paper does anything it reveals our general lack of knowledge on the whole subject.  However, that's not to say that an unbelieving friend may not still engage you on this subject.  "Hey!  Did you hear that Jesus may have had a wife?!  I wonder how that affects what the Bible says."  What would you say to a comment like that?  Most of us would have no idea where to start.  

Thankfully, Dr. James White, an actual expert on the subject, gives us some wise talking points and a few opinions of his own.   Enjoy!    A Note to the Secular World:  Do Your History
