Mark, My Words

Preliminary reports are that seven new fragments of New Testament texts have been identified, and one of them may well date from the first century – within the lifetime of Jesus’ first followers.  

This would be the first text fragment from the first century, an exciting find that will further bolster the textual transmission record of the New Testament, further demonstrating the accuracy with which the text has been copied.  Just another piece of evidence in an already impressive collection of texts and text fragments which, taken together, demonstrate an amazingly accurate transmission of the text.  It will be interesting to learn more about what portion of Mark this fragment is from.
