A Wife, a Wife, My Kingdom for a Wife


There's a bit of debate over a recently unearthed scrap of papyrus that indicates early Copts thought Jesus had a wife.

Bible scholar Ben Witherington III, a professor in Kentucky, said the term "wife" might simply refer to a female domestic assistant and follower. The man must have a death wish? I'd expect that kind of statement from Mitt (Oops) Romney.

Parsley - what's that all about? Never understood the stuff. Tastes like green carrots and is frankly a waste of time and effort.

  1. Parsley - I always saw it as a foil to the more complex character of Bayleaf (the gardener that is)

  2. I bought that same scrap of papyrus in a market in Cairo, except mine is obviously the original.

    Oh and parsley rocks, only with fish though.

    1. Hideous bit of frippery - the parsley, that is. Oh, and the bible...

  3. They only came across that information by stealing stuff from old graves : a case of Copts and Robbers.

  4. You weren't referring to Tim Romney the dyslexic sheep by chance?
