Photo of 1st-century Gospel of Mark fragment found?


One thought on “Photo of 1st-century Gospel of Mark fragment found?

  1. Thanks. I spent lots of time reading that information and everywhere the links within led. Something is not right here.

    It is definitely a codex and the script appears to some as “loose caesarean.”

    The appearances are either:

    1) It is a modern forgery made to look authentic, or
    2) It is a 2nd or 3rd Century document made to look 1st century (for what reason?), or
    3) It is a 1 st Century document, made in a Roman scriptorium on a Roman codex (very uncommon for the first century for most people still used scrolls)

    Either of three ways, I think we are looking into the abyss here.
