Much of the biblical scholarly world has been buzzing since Feb. 1, when a New Testament professor made a claim during a debate that was news to most everyone who heard it — a first-century fragment of Mark’s Gospel may have been found. It would be the earliest-known fragment of the New Testament, placing it in the very century of Christ and the apostles.
