Blogger J.W. Wartick shares the following regarding the text:
"Apart from the fact that it is 4th century and therefore a few hundred years after the events and during primetime for Gnostics making up facts about Jesus to undergird their own theological leanings, many seem to think this is somehow evidence against Christianity."
Wartick goes on to offer an outstanding collection of resources responding to the discovery here.
To her credit, Karen King, the Harvard Scholar who unveiled the fourth-century papyrus, admitted:
"This is the only extant ancient text which explicitly portrays Jesus as referring to a wife. It does not, however, provide evidence that the historical Jesus was married, given the late date of the fragment and the probable date of original composition only in the second half of the second century."
Of course, to my knowledge, many of the major media outlets didn't feel the need to report that.
