    'Gospel of Jesus's Wife': Records Hint at Improbable Journey of Controversial Papyrus



    Improbable journey

    If the "Jesus's Wife" papyrus is authentic, it would mean that Laukamp would have had to figure out a way to reach Potsdam in 1963. In that year, West Berliners could only travel to East Berlin at Christmas, and only if they had family on that side of the city, according to historical records from that time period. President John F. Kennedy himself protested these conditions, flying to West Berlin in 1963 to give his famous "Ich bin ein Berliner" speech.

    If Laukamp did try to reach Potsdam, he would have risked being caught and would have had to explain to East German, and possibly Soviet, authorities that the papyrus he was carrying, with the Coptic handwriting, was simply an ancient papyrus and not a coded message ...

    The business card-sized fragment of papyrus now called the Gospel of Jesus's Wife contains a translated line which says "Jesus said to them, 'My wife …'" and also refers to a "Mary," possibly Mary Magdalene.
