The peer reviewed Virology Journal
in reaction to a wave of criticism has embarrassingly retracted a July 21 article suggesting that Matthew 8:14-15, Mark 1:29-31 and Luke 4:38-39 are accounts of Jesus having cured a woman (Peter's mother-in-law) of influenza. The obvious question is how such an article could have been published in a peer reviewed scientific journal to begin with.
The retraction came after criticisms, including those made via blogs and a comment posted on the paper by Paul Gray of the Washington University School of Medicine, expressing the view that it was unclear how the paper met any of the normal standards of such a journal other than someone paid to have it published.
The Abstract and Case of the Article began with the following sentence:
The Bible describes the case of a woman with high fever cured by our Lord Jesus Christ.
