On “My Wife”

I’m seeing a third century quote attributed to Jesus getting a load of blogplay the past few days. I think I’m going to stay on the fence and not read too much into/of this stuff. Even if genuine, which I cannot imagine, there will be enough deniers to withhold universal traction, wherever that would lead.

Otherwise, interesting cocktail talk, but move along, theologians.

We all know Jesus was a carpenter, a son of a carpenter. Christians do not have a sacrament of woodcarving, let alone cabinet-making, so that strikes me as an appropriate follow-up of what we do know. Clergy don’t convert to Judaism before ordination, so we know that the masculinity of those at the Last Supper (which I’m not so sure we’re sure of) is more important than what we do know. And as for the connection to the fishing industry, the pope has a ring. But no mother-in-law.

Now, let’s get back to what really makes a difference in the imitation of Christ: how and what one does for others to exemplify the Lord, not how we look for little clues to indulge our fascination.

    The Middle East tapestry is burning and fraying apart…Akmedinjad (sp?) and Netanyahu are more eyeball to eyeball than JFK/Nikita….Romney and Obama are making a mockery of the office of the presidency of the USA….China and Japan wanna have their own Falklands….the dollar will lose its status as the world’s currency standard…humanity is fixated on some princess’s exposed breasts….Christianity is more represented by Joel Osteen than B16…. and we’re falling for more gnostic papyrus.
    what the hell else ‘ve we to do?

    Gender is one thing. Masculinity is an entirely different thing, and neither is to be confused with the other.

    The RCC will do all that it can to disprove any possibility that this little bit of papyrus remotely reflects any truth about Jesus. Can you imagine the sturm and drung? The crisis of faith that is invested in priests needing to be celibate to mirror Jesus? The twisint and turning need in order to say: “As the Church has always taught ….”? No, there is way too much invested in the status quo to ever admit to a contrary reality …. if that ever is actually proven.

    Doesit matter if Jesus was married or not? I can’t help thinking that the more we know about him, the better Christians we can be.
