Word has it a 2nd century fragment of Hebrews 11 was discovered three weeks ago. If the dating is correct this would be (I believe) the oldest extant copy of that book and one of the oldest New Testament manuscripts yet discovered. It was found in a funerary mask. It seems the fragment is on display through the weekend at Baylor University. Not exactly in my jurisdiction down here in Florida. Maybe some readers near Baylor will be able to check it out in person.
Preachers and Bible teachers should not proclaim this yet without caveats. The dating and provenance have not been confirmed, and the text has not been published for review. If the initial claims hold up under scrutiny, that would be excellent news. There are enough mistaken analyses and (gasp) fraudulent discoveries out there to warrant caution on everyone’s part.
Early copies of the New Testament are relatively rare, in part because many manuscripts were rounded up and destroyed by Roman authorities during persecutions in the late 3rd century.
