New news about old news that was really no news

It has made headlines, and like anything that is potentially damaging to Christianity or disturbing to Christians, it was gullibly swallowed and gleefully spread by the media. I'm talking about this document purported to be from the fourth century in which Jesus says the words "my wife".

Now why should a document be given any credence when that document, even if authentic, isn't from the time of Christ or the land in which He lived, and doesn't even explicitly say He was married, and, even if it did, contradicts everything written about Him by those in the first century! It just displays the objectivity of the popular media I suppose (yes, my tongue is firmly in my cheek, and I'll keep it there as I say, watch all the media outlets report on the link below!!)

Dan Wallace has the following information (here), check it out, and let's move on!
