It was a spirited coffee at Denver Country Club when The Harvard Women’s Studies in Religion Program Colorado Steering Committee hosted Dr. Karen King, Hollis Professor of Divinity at Harvard. Her topic: “Was Jesus Married? Early Christian Controversies over Marriage, Celibacy and Salvation.”
King is at the center of the current discussion over whether Jesus had a wife with recently discovered and translated ancient Christian writing from Egypt. On the screen was an enlargement of the three-inch piece of papyrus that carries the message hinting of the possibility of a wife. King presented a fascinating translation and fielded questions from the audience.
Guest speaker – groundbreaking scholar Dr. Karen King, Program Co-Chairs Linda Bowen Scott and Marie Whiteside, who had reams of paper extolling the scholarly accomplishments of King for her introduction; philanthropists Arlene Hirschfeld and Lynda Goldstein who are on the Dean’s Council and spearhead the WSRP Colorado Steering Committee
