Jesus’ Wife Papyrus Forgery: From Blogs to Mass Media in a Week

What was noted on several blogs (including this one) on April 24 has, a full week later, finally started making the rounds in mass media venues:

April 30, Daily Mail

May 1, Wall Street Journal

May 4, New York Times

May 4, PBS NewsHour

May 5, Discovery News

The unfolding of events presents a good case-in-point for the increasingly important role that blogs are playing in the study of Christian origins and scholarly communication more generally. It also shows how important open, digital access to original source texts is to the cause of scholarly inquiry and debate.
