Earliest Manuscript of Mark’s Gospel Found…on Facebook?!

Earliest Manuscript of Mark’s Gospel Found…on Facebook?! February 19, 2012

A Facebook friend asked me about this image earlier today, and when I asked about its source, I received no reply. Someone else, however, mentioned that the infamous D. M. Murdock as having already been discussing it online, making me even more suspicious. But a couple of bibliobloggers have posted the picture, and so I thought I’d do so as well.

What, if anything, does this have to do with the supposedly first-century manuscript fragment of the Gospel of Mark that Dan Wallace has been talking about?

I have no idea, as yet, because when something appears on Facebook, like an ossuary appearing on the antiquities market, lots of questions are left as yet unanswered.
