Harvard Theological Review: Gospel of Jesus' Wife NOT rejected

There's a rumor circulating the Internets about Harvard Theological Review rejecting Karen King's research paper on the "Gospel of Jesus' Wife."

Not so, says Harvard Divinity School spokesman Jonathan Beasley.

In an email this morning, Beasley told me:

"Dr. King’s `marriage fragment' paper, which Harvard Theological Review is planning to publish in its January, 2013, edition – if testing of the ink and other aspects of the fragment are completed in time – will include her responses to the vigorous and appropriate academic debate engendered by discovery of the fragment, as well as her report on the ink analysis, and further examination of the fragment."
