Did Jesus Have a Wife?

The discovery of a piece of fourth-century papyrus has led some to ask, Did Jesus have a wife? This finding was revealed last week and has some folks raising eyebrows, others poking fun, and still more shaking their heads over the (literal) threads of evidence. Fr. Jim Martin weighed in in The New York Times. Share his article with young adults and ask them what they think:

  • Do you think Jesus may have had a wife? Why or why not?
  • What has Jesus taught you about your relationships with family, spouses, boyfriend/girlfriend?
