I, for one, am not surprised by new findings from the second century which suggest Jesus had a wife.
The scrap of ancient papyrus unveiled by Harvard professor Karen King which quotes Jesus referring to 'my wife' is just another brick in the wall of common sense which says that any man able to stay calm (usually) and upbeat in the face of daily abuse must have had a woman warming his slippers and rubbing his shoulders at night.
It must have been ruddy exhausting doing Jesus's work, fighting for good sense, compassion and tolerance in the face of ignorance and prejudice.
He'd probably have appreciated a foot massage, and, I guess,Jesus, like Bill Clinton, got loads of ideas from his wife too, as well as some of his best lines. That one about the meek inheriting the Earth has a woman's hands all over it.
