There's A Good Liklihood Jesus Was Married

A fragment of papyrus that was originally revealed to the world in 2012 has been undergoing tests to validate its authenticity. The scientists have done their studies and the verdict is in: the papyrus is ancient. While the age of the document is all fine and good, it's what is written on it that makes it so intriguing. The New York Times reports that the scrap "contained a phrase never before seen in any piece of Scripture: 'Jesus said to them, ‘My wife...’'... it also contained the words 'she will be able to be my disciple.'"

In case you were wondering, the fragment does not contain the entire scripture or even the entire sentence. The NY Times story goes on to point out that this is not proof that Jesus did in fact have a wife or even disciples who were women, but that this ancient document is the real deal and not a fake. 

What are your thoughts on this new finding? Do you think Jesus had a wife? If so, should churches change their stance on a woman's role in religious structure?
