You may already know the outcome of this story, but what you may not know is what happened behind the scenes.
A few years ago rumors of an early fragment of Mark’s Gospel circulated among scholars and interested parties. I sat down with Dr. Craig Evans recently on “The Stone Chapel” to sort out what was true and what was false about the rumors. The fragment is remarkable, but it is not as early as some said at first. He tells an amazing story of intrigue, discovery and perhaps some significant missteps.
