sermonette: The Gospel of Jesus' Wife
Given 06-Aug-16; Sermon #1335s; 18 minutes
Mike Ford, focusing on a colossal blunder made by Harvard Theology Professor, Karen King, who was scammed by a crafty German forger and pornographer, Walter Fritz, debunks the salacious, sensational account that Jesus Christ had married Mary Magdalene and had children with her. Would-be scholars continually attempt to discredit the possibility of Jesus Christ's divinity, making Him just as carnal as any of us. These bogus scholars attempt to build a case on discredited, non-canonical texts which had been discarded by serious scholars, including the Gospel of Thomas, the Gospel of Peter, the Gospel of Philip, the Gospel of Mary, all so-called gnostic gospels appearing on the scene 200 years after the true gospels were established. In actuality, none of these bogus scriptures offered substantiation that Jesus was married either. In all the key events in scripture, including Jesus final instructions to John as He died on the cross, no mention is made of wife or offspring. Even though eight separate articles have made a compelling case for the spuriousness of the "Gospel of Jesus Wife" papyrus fragment, the Dean of the Harvard Divinity School, with egg on her face, continues to give this bogus manuscript a place of honor, giving a forgery more prominence than God's truth.
