One thought on “Hamblin-Peterson Column evaluating the Jesus’ Wife papyrus

  1. The ‘find’ I feel gives countless numbers of people hope. The world is in chaos, and a glimmer of hope regarding Jesus is a candle for some, a beacon for others, who cling to their religious beliefs and pray for a better tomorrow. The author rightfully denies making unfounded accusations, and give her credit. Where else can one find an article, written in scholarly objectivity, that doesn’t try to cash in on the beliefs and emotions of others.
