New Gospel Fragment

Last week I noted about Oxford University putting a papyrus fragments online in a bid to get people to help transcribe and measure the fragments.

The article I linked to noted that one of the fragments contains an unknown story of Jesus performing an exorcism. It apparently dates from the 3rd century and is from and noncanonical gospel. Larry Hurtado has also commented on it and provided a picture of the fragment. Here is a link where you can look at P5072. It will be interesting to hear what is said about this fragment over the next few months.
