Gender in Biblical Studies after the Gospel of Jesus’ Wife

Posted by on Saturday, June 18th, 2016

A couple years ago Eva Mroczek wrote an excellent blog post on the open sexism surrounding academic discourse on the Gospel of Jesus’ Wife and it seems worth revisiting in light of the Atlantic article published yesterday.
