Earliest Manuscript from Romans Allegedly Discovered posted by Henry B. Smith Jr. MA

Overall, seven New Testament papyri had recently been discovered—six of them probably from the second century and one of them probably from the first. These fragments will be published in about a year. These manuscripts now increase our holdings as follows: we have as many as eighteen New Testament manuscripts (all fragmentary, more or less) from the second century and one from the first. Altogether, more than 40% of all New Testament verses are found in these manuscripts. But the most interesting thing is the first-century fragment.

Read further comments from Dr. Daniel Wallace and the Center for the Study of New Testament Manuscripts on this discovery and the discovery of a fragment from the Gospel of Mark.

Italian Scientists Assert Shroud of Turin is Authentic posted by Henry B. Smith Jr. MA

The research will be an early Christmas present for shroud believers, but is likely to be greeted with scepticism by those who doubt that the sepia-coloured, 14ft-long cloth dates from Christ's crucifixion 2,000 years ago.
