These six little words reignited the debate of whether Jesus was married and whether he had a female disciple: "Jesus said to them, 'My wife ...' "
Laurie Goodstein of The New York Times reports:

The faded papyrus fragment is smaller than a business card, with eight lines on one side, in black ink legible under a magnifying glass. Just below the line about Jesus having a wife, the papyrus includes a second provocative clause that purportedly says, “she will be able to be my disciple.”
The finding was made public in Rome on Tuesday at the International Congress of Coptic Studies by Karen L. King, a historian who has published several books about new Gospel discoveries and is the first woman to hold the nation’s oldest endowed chair, the Hollis professor of divinity.
The provenance of the papyrus fragment is a mystery, and its owner has asked to remain anonymous. Until Tuesday, Dr. King had shown the fragment to only a small circle of experts in papyrology and Coptic linguistics, who concluded that it is most likely not a forgery.

I am convinced he did.  Mary Magdalene was his wife and it is all documented in the four Gnostic gospels that the fat white boys in the Vatican have suppressed since the beginning.  These gospels were deliberately left out of the bible. That's called control and censorship.  All of which the catholic church and the Vatican does so well.
