"Jesus' Wife" fragment determined to be FAKE

Here is an update on the "Gospel of Jesus' Wife" fragment recently in the news. Daniel Wallace says that Harvard Theological Review has decided not to publish Karen King's paper on the fragment because of the consensus of other Coptic scholars who have determined the manuscript fragment to be a fake.

This is not the first time such a document has been shown to be fraudulent, faked, or falsified in some way. My only question is whether this story will be picked up as quickly by the secular media as the original...

I saw this earlier today as well.

Edit: It really is ridiculous how even scholars will approach things so sloppily. If I had discovered the fragment, I would have checked with other specialists before I revealed my find. I know there may be many reasons it had been revealed (perhaps it wasn't Karen King that revealed it, or perhaps she revealed it so that it would be irrefutably her find in case she waited and someone wanted to steal credit), but I just cannot shake feeling as though it was a bit immature to release such info.

It's now being reported that the article has not been rejected.

Nevertheless, we now have very serious credibility problems for the fragment, with multiple scholars even at Harvard calling it a fake. This will shape up to be a lively debate.
