Webinar on the Coptic Fragment

Deirdre Good and Katherine Shaner, Professors of New Testament at The General Theological Seminary, will lead the webinar “A Conversation about the Gospel of Jesus’ Wife” on Tuesday, September 25, 2012 from 7:30 – 9:00 PM. The webinar will be an informal presentation about a newly-unveiled papyrus fragment that includes an electrifying sentence suggesting that Christians in the late second century believed Jesus had been married. The fragment is intriguing both for what it says and for what it does not say. There will be ample opportunity for questions and discussion.
