Recently, an ancient papyrus fragment was discovered that mentioned Jesus had a wife. Which certainly makes it easier to understand why he was so willing to get on that cross. In fact, now I can’t help but wonder if Jesus really died for our sins or if He was faking his own death to get away from the old ball and chain.
Suddenly, this whole crucifixion thing is starting to resemble an Ashley Judd movie. “You may have witnessed his death, ma’am, but your husband rose from the dead three days later and took off.”
Last week, the Vatican issued a statement that the papyrus was a fake and that Jesus did not have a wife. Which also got me thinking: For an organization that claims to oppose homosexuality, they sure do go to a lot of trouble to make sure people think Jesus didn’t like women and only hung out with dudes.
In any case, I have to go. My wife is yelling at me to take out the garbage. There’s never an angry mob wanting to nail you to a piece of wood when you need one.
