Divinity professor Karen L. King holds a fourth century fragment of papyrus that she said is the only existing ancient text that quotes Jesus explicitly referring to having a wife. King, an expert in the history of Christianity, said the text contains a dialogue in which Jesus refers to “my wife,” whom he identified as Mary. King said the fragment of Coptic script is a copy of a gospel, probably written in Greek in the second century.
