(LODINEWS) — It is very difficult to verify whether a small piece of papyrus indicates that Jesus Christ was married, according to three biblical scholars from University of the Pacific.

“I have no intention of debunking the Bible,” said Dr. Anthony Le Donne, a visiting professor at Pacific from Sonoma County. “But this conversation is worth having.”

An estimated 200 people attended a discussion on campus Wednesday night about whether Jesus was married. No concrete conclusions were made.
