This is apparent reference to Mary Magdalene. The papyrus was written in Coptic, earlier translated from Greek. The papyrus is said to be 4th Century CE old though the original text could be as old as 2nd Century CE. Professor King herself warns that it is no proof about the wife of Jesus but inappropriately calls the papyrus, “Gospel of Jesus’s Wife”.
Jesus knew since his early childhood that he was a very special person; the son of God, being born of Virgin mother. He also knew that he would not stay on earth for quite long. He told his disciples that he would die but would be resurrected and he also predicted about his second coming.
Jesus could not be irresponsible person and even though he could have some attraction for Mary Magdalene he would not love her knowing that the relationship would not last long. The bottomline is that he would not marry Mary Magdalene. His supposed grave along with that of female named as Mary Magdalene and a girl child tells at the initial hatred of Rabbis of Jesus: he was not crucified as he was made to become invisible on Friday after the verdict by Augustus and Rabbis crucified a look-alike person writing on the horizontal bar, ‘Jesus the king of Jews’, following an audio-instruction by invisible people. Jesus again became visible on Sunday. The fact that neither Shroud of Turin nor that horizontal bar is in the direct possession of the Vatican can confirm the story. He should have learned hard facts about the real life in two days that he should have spent with supposed agents of the ‘God’: the spaceship people. Sure, the Da Vinci code is just a fiction and over-belief in self.
As far as sex and Christianity is concerned, the fact is Mary and Joseph used to have sex as they had many children. The fact is that all these disputes about sex, marriage and reproduction should be settled by now by understanding the meaning and purpose of Christianity. Jesus asked his disciples to evangelize Jews after the resurrection. What it meant was that Christianity was primarily targeted to Caucasians who would one day become Westerners. Jesus should be considered as the father of the West and Mary, his mother, the first Westerners, although Christianity is meant for all those who follow it.
For Westerners and other Christians the question about sex, marriage and procreation should be considered trivial. They should definitely do sex; as much as morality permits within the institutions of marriage, between a male and a female, if they follow Christian traditions. The Westerners should have high libido and should update their ids and egos with time. All producers should do as much sex as possible without becoming pervert, incest and homosexual, if they follow their religions.
They can wait for a kind of sex machine to actualize their fantasies in real world through virtual automated technology which would convert their pervertness into morality by satisfying all fantasies in ethical and moral manner. With the help of this supposed sex machine the Westerners would become more moral than immoral as a group. Reproduction is the requirement and necessity of all time. As far Jesus is concerned he should have enjoyed whatever was permissible in his future planet and sex should be considered a trivial thing. Only consumerist societies can invent spaceships and therefore only they can preach religions on earth. All spaceship societies would believe in sex, capital, competition and rewards.
As far as Coptic papyrus is concerned, may be the author misinterpreted the magnanimity and generosity of Jesus and his affection with Mary Magdalene as resulting in marriage. Most probably he should be tearful and emotional when he wrote it: it is the colorization of early Christianity. A faithful should believe in what is the accepted norm. The Christian God-incarnate would not become fallible because of sex. Jesus life on earth was too short-lived to make it a relevant question and he knew about it.
