Historian: Faded piece of papyrus refers to Jesus’ wife

The New York Times: A historian of early Christianity at Harvard Divinity School says a scrap of papyrus, written in Coptic in the 4th century, contains the phrase: “Jesus said to them, ‘My wife…’” The phrase has never been seen in any piece of Scripture.
