Oops! 18 Centuries of Celibate Misery and All For Naught!

1800 years of patriarchy, misogyny and celibate misery based on the “mistaken” assumption that Jesus thought that sex was dirty made by a bunch of women hating bearded geezers in Constantinople and all for nothing!

A recently uncovered fragment of ancient papyrus makes the explosive suggestion that Jesus and Mary Magdalene were man and wife, researchers say.

The 8cm by 4cm fragment supports an undercurrent in Christian thought that undermines centuries of Church dogma by suggesting the Christian Messiah was not celibate.

The centre of the fragment contains the bombshell phrase where Jesus, speaking to his disciples, says ‘my wife’, which researchers believe refers to Magdalene.

  1. Michael Baigent and Richard Leigh touched on this subject with their book ‘The Holy Blood and the Holy Grail’ (and the source material for ‘The Da Vinci Code’) in 1982 before diving in deeper in with their follow-up ‘The Messianic Legacy’ in 1987. They were quite explicit… Jesus was married to Mary Magdelene.

    • i’m halfway through their “The Dead Sea Scrolls Deception”. A good piece of kickarse journalism. As is their book on the Masons: “The Temple and the Lodge”. Proper scholars and gentlemen, those two.

  2. there has been stacks of info available for centuries on this topic, though thanks to the churches, it disappears from libraries.
    John Allegro wrote about this in a follow-up to The Sacred Mushroom and the Cross, (can’t remember the title but owned it in the 70s) quoting letters exchanged between 3rd century bishops, in which they discussed sexual initiation among the earliest Christians. Some good work is out on the Qumran Essenes, who were known as extremely disciplined in their sexual life, but not celibate. This fragment of papyrus is really great for the purpose of polevaulting one or two dusty academics to fame and fortune, but it doesn’t add significant support to what is already out there.
