Deeply marvellous - a new 2nd century patristic text!!! Alin has been sifting through patristic Coptic papyri for a number of years now, and deserves every bit of reward for so doing. Let us hope that it holds up.
Yes, apparently, an impressive find! In a comment on his blog he adds some tantalizing further information: "...the Coptic manuscript has ca. 16 pages. In addition to these, there are some previously neglected fragments in Greek."
I may have to update my page on the "Fragments of Melito of Sardis." Good news!
"... almost every critical biblical position was earlier advanced by skeptics." - Raymond Brown
Do people think it's the same work?
