In recent years several scholars have claimed to discover fragments of New Testament scriptures dated to the first century. Those claims have not held up under the scrutiny of other scholars. But now Daniel Wallace, the founder of The Center for the Study of New Testament Manuscripts, and a professor at Dallas Seminary, has announced the discovery of a first century fragment of the gospel of Mark.

UPDATE – A Christian Post article on Prof. Wallace and his work.
