The tiny fragment, written in Egyptian Coptic, contains a purported reference by Jesus to his wife. New evidence dates it to between the sixth and ninth centuries.

Sure! There's a wonderful documentary called From Jesus to Christ, which I believe A&E did about 15 years ago, which does a great job of tracking the evolution of 'the Jesus cult' from obscurity to full-on religiosity.
I'd start there.

Then, after you have that background, there are MANY books on the historical Jesus to choose from. I've not read it, but a well-received introductory text is 'The Historical Jesus: An Essential Guide' by James Charlesworth, a professor at Princeton Seminary.
