The Dead Sea Scrolls "Testimonia 4Q175" scroll fragment
This story from FoxNews is about some ancient books recently uncovered in Jordan that could date to the beginning of Christianity.
While no word is given on the actual content of the books in the linked story, having books written closer in time to the death and resurrection of Christ will certainly stir some interest.
As is always the case with books of this type, there is a lot of controversy surrounding them according to other accounts. Some reportedly consider them forgeries and others believe they could be more significant than the Dead Sea Scrolls.
You be the judge...
