Overall, seven New Testament papyri had recently been discovered—six of them probably from the second century and one of them probably from the first. These fragments will be published in about a year. These manuscripts now increase our holdings as follows: we have as many as eighteen New Testament manuscripts (all fragmentary, more or less) from the second century and one from the first. Altogether, more than 40% of all New Testament verses are found in these manuscripts. But the most interesting thing is the first-century fragment.

Read further comments from Dr. Daniel Wallace and the Center for the Study of New Testament Manuscripts on this discovery and the discovery of a fragment from the Gospel of Mark.
