What do you hear?

Did Jesus have a wife? Three more perspectives. [1]

Here is the original post in this series

  1. The Coptic Papyrus by Martin E. Marty in an online series entitled Sightings published by the University of Chicago Divinity School. The essay examines the interaction of media and religion (and scholarship).
  2. Jesus’s Wife: Would it even matter for Women? by Sonja and posted on the blog WIT: Women in Theology. This essay examines what impact this text would have on women in the Church IF (a very big if according to the author) there was a debate 1800 years ago about the marriage status of Jesus.
  3. Vatican newspaper calls ‘Jesus’ Wife’ fragment a ‘clumsy fake.’ This is an article by Alessandro Speciale dated Sep. 28, 2012 on Religion News Service (RNS) reporting on an article published in L’Osservatore Romano (the Vatican’s newspaper).
    1. Here is a link to the English edition of L’Osservatore Romano.
    2. And, finally, a link to the English translation of the original article in L’Osservatore Romano

No shoes, no taxes, no sacraments

On Monday (9/24) I read this summary of a Pastoral Letter of the Roman Catholic Bishops of Germany. Later in the week I read their defense of their action. I understand, thanks to Hovak, that an article appeared in The Desert Sun on Saturday, Sep. 29, 2012 on page A-13. More to come, I believe.
