Modern myths about the ancient world. Monday, 28 May The new papyrus of the gospel of Mark I give here a copy of the new papyrus of the gospel of Mark: Oxyrhynchus papyrus , or P. I also give some basic guidance on how to read papyrological notation, and a condensed selection of notes on the text. The Egypt Exploration Society has made their publication open access: Background In December Scott Carroll, until the director of the Green Collection, announced that he knew of a New Testament manuscript older than any other that was publicly known. In February the papyrologist Daniel Wallace cited the existence of a papyrus of Mark dating to the 1st century, as supporting evidence in a public debate.
There’s evidence to back up either side: Radiocarbon dating indicates the papyrus dates to AD , and tests on the ink suggest it’s the same type used at that time. If the ink is authentic, it’s “conceivable” that someone might have scraped ancient ink from another ancient document, mixed it with water, and created the piece, but “no one has ever actually shown that this has ever been done,” reports the Atlantic. On the other hand, the document’s words and phrases—even a grammatical error—appear to have been copied directly from another ancient document, the Gospel of Thomas, leading to doubts.
Opinion by Joel S. Baden and Candida R. In , a Harvard professor, Karen King, brought this papyrus to the attention of scholars and the public. It was good enough for King, who is widely respected in the scholarly world. The papyrus, along with a few other ancient papyri of lesser novelty, had been passed to King by an anonymous figure. Anonymity, in the world of antiquities, is often a bad sign, compounding the inherent uncertainty when dealing with texts that are bought and sold rather than discovered in a firm archaeological setting.
Then there were aspects of the text itself that seemed suspicious. For a fragmented scrap of papyrus, it seemed to have an awful lot of important content on it. It is almost too good to be true. At the same time, the handwriting seemed surprisingly sloppy. Then again, other scholars noted that just because a scribe has poor handwriting and a text is informative does not make it a forgery.
Perhaps we just got lucky this time. More specific issues arose in the perceived familiarity of the document.

Fumbling through this awkward stage during my freshman year was definitely a learning experience. Coming in as a freshman, I built up this image in my head of what my overall college experience was going to be like. I was going to have a huge group of friends, just like back home, and I was going to meet an attractive, Godly, gentleman who I would fall in love with my first semester. This dream quickly vanished as everyone, not including myself, found a significant other.
