Dan Wallace Comments on Newly Discovered Manuscripts

by Max Andrews

Wallace: There are seven manuscripts that have been discovered in the last few months (May 2012). They are all papyri from the gospels and Paul’s letters (including Hebrews because that’s how the manuscripts treat them.) These seven manuscripts are all either second century, one probably first century, and two maybe third century… What’s remarkable is there’s a Luke fragment that is probably first half of the second century, which is coequal with the oldest known manuscript, P52, which is John… Keep watching!
