1st Century Copy of Mark's Gospel

Posted By

Over the past several years we have had several posts about a papyrus fragment of the Gospel of Mark discovered several years ago that preliminarily dates from the 1st century A.D. This would make it the earliest copy of the New Testament known to exist and the only one from the 1st century. It was supposed to have been published in 2013.

Now there is some new information from Dr. Craig Evans. He claims the papyrus fragment had been dated by various methods to be earlier than A.D. 90. and will be published in 2015. You can read about it here.
