A Newly Discovered NT Papyrus!

Claire Clivaz, a professor at the University of Lausanne and a member of the Textual Criticism Group, has announced the discovery of a previously unknown papyrus fragment of the New Testament consisting of a few verses from the Letter to the Hebrews (13:12-13, 19-20).  Dated to the fourth century, it will be added to the Gregory-Aland catalog under the designation P126.

Information is limited as of yet, but additional details may be available after an upcoming conference at Lausanne scheduled for October 22-24, during which Claire plans to discuss the find.  I look forward to hearing more details!
