"Examining the authenticity of the Gospel of Jesus' Wife"

I'M GOING WITH FORGERY: Forgery or a Lost Account? Examining the Authenticity of the Gospel of Jesus’ Wife (Jack Wilkin, Ancient Origins). As I have noted before, the quality of the essays in Ancient Origins is variable. This one looks like a pretty good brief account of the scholarly issues that led to the debunking of the Gospel of Jesus' Wife as a modern forgery.

The article does not go into the strange story of its modern chain of ownership, perhaps wisely, given space constrains. More on that here.

And for many other posts on the Gospel of Jesus' Wife, see here and here and just keep following those links.
