Christ discovered a mysterious text that might have married Mary Magdalene
A novel that also became a movieDa Vinci CodeBut depiction that Jesus Christ was married to Mary of Magdala comes out, but Karen King of Harvard University said that papyrus with the text that Jesus was saying "my wife" was written I found out. This sentence also refers to "Mary (Maria)" at the same time, which is supposed to point to Mary Magdala and is impacting the Christians.

The movie is from the following.
Papyrus debris was even smaller than credit cards, and characters were written with black ink on both sides. According to King, the document is derived from the language of ancient Egypt and is thought to have been translated from the 3rd to the 4th century as well as many of the early Christian documents.
Papyrus said that it is difficult to read strictly because 33 words of words are written by incomplete 14 lines of sentences. King gathered the following eight sentences from Papyrus.
(1) "not [to] me. My mother gave to me li [fe] ..." ("It is not to me, my mother gave a life to me ...")
(2) The disciples said to Jesus, "(The disciples said to Jesus,")
(3) deny. Mary is worthy of it (That's not it. Mary is worth it.)
(4) "Jesus said to them," My wife ("Jesus said to them," My wife is)
(5) she will be able to to my my disciple (she could be my disciple)
(6) Let wicked people swell up (I am increasing the number of evil people)
(7) As for me, I dwell with her in order to (In my case, I live with her)
(8) an image (one image)
According to her analysis, "Mary" written in (3) is probably "Maria of Magdala" and is presumed to be a depiction that Jesus guards Mary from his disciples. And "My wife" in (4) and "she" in (5) are also showing Mary Magdalene. This document may have been one page of books, but in any case this is the first ancient document that depicts that Jesus Christ was married for the first time.
King got a gnostic gospel from the manuscript collector in 2010, in which the document about Jesus, his disciple and Mary Mary was included, as he sent a picture It seems that she received an e-mail saying "Do you see it?" After receiving detailed information and photographs, she seemed to have suspected that she was a fake, but when I sent a picture to Roger Bagnall, a famous New York University in papyrus studies, "I can believe it It is genuine, "he said.
However, Mr. King does not claim that this piece of evidence is actually proof that Jesus Christ was married. According to her analysis the Gospel documented the lifetime (and the Hereafter) of Jesus Christ, and many Gospels were thought to be written in Greece in the 2nd century AD, after Jesus' crucifixion. And it was insufficient as proof of Jesus' marriage because it was translated into ancient Egyptian language about 2 centuries later.
What this chip revealed is more subtle and complex. As can be seen from the papyrus, the early Christians wrote Jesus Christ who taught them to be sublime, intellectual and wifeful. And it is just a wife, there is a possibility of Mary Magdalene, the woman most mentioned in the New Bible. According to King, the question presented by this discovery is that "only the literature that only Jesus Christ is single" survived "and that Jesus was closely related to Mary Magdalene and other women Is there no document left for that? about it. It is not clear whether this is mere coincidence or because it was ideal for Christians alone.
In addition, Papyrus has not finished scientific tests such as examining ink yet, and King stated himself that the importance of this discovery is based on the hypothesis that "this papyrus is genuine" . She is going to publish a paper entitled "The Gospel of Jesus's Wife" after conducting scientific tests such as spectral analysis in the future.
