The Newer Testament

An intriguing new papyrus
from a text on Jesus’ life
suggests the possibility
he may have had a wife.
Perhaps she even pestered him
when low on loaves and fishes.
“Turn that wine back into water,”
she would say, “and do the dishes!”
Though a carpenter, his home repairs
would linger on and on.
If she said, “I’ve got a headache,”
he would answer, “There, it’s gone!”
Then he left the house one afternoon
and simply told her, “Ciao!
There’s a thing I’ve got to do,
but I’ll be back three days from now!”
