To be fair, the tiny fragment never says that Jesus was married.
The fragment appears to be cut from the middle of a larger document; it contains just eight partial lines, written in a crude hand, one of which
says, “And Jesus said to them, ‘My wife,’ ” The next says, “She will be able to be my disciple.”
The first line, according to King’s translation, says in part: “My mother gave me life.
He could have been talking about His ministry, or about being a disciple and giving up one's family to walk with Him. He could of simply said to a
woman of the time, "I treat her as I would my wife. She will be able to be my disciple." They are only raising assumptions based on a fragment of text
that can be taken out of context. The text could have also said, "She is not my wife. She will be able to be my disciple." Maybe that fragment was Him
answering a question from a disciple.
They don't know for a fact, and neither do we. I would hate to postulate a theory without known facts just to further any type of nefarious agenda. On
the other hand, there are about 20 years missing from His life that are scarcely written about, if at all. So we truly don't know the answer from
either side. Why even make it a big issue?
ETA: This may be another source of proof that shows He existed. Some people still to this day deny He ever walked the Earth. So beside the fragment
mentioning the word "wife"...it mentions the existence of the man named Jesus of Nazareth. All of which is much more relevant than the subject of a
word in the fragment itself.
It proves more than most people want to admit.
