A text that may be the oldest copy of a gospel known to exist -- a fragment of the Gospel of Mark that was written during the first century, before the year 90 -- is set to be published. This first-century gospel fragment was written on a sheet of papyrus that was later reused to create a mask that was worn by a mummy. In recent years scientists have developed a technique that allows the glue of mummy masks to be undone without harming the ink on the paper. The text on the sheets can then be read. "We're recovering ancient documents from the first, second and third centuries. Not just Christian documents, not just biblical documents, but classical Greek texts, business papers, various mundane papers, personal letters," said Craig Evans, a professor of New Testament studies at Acadia Divinity College.
