New Gospel Discovered
A new gospel was discovered recently by a team of archaeologists. The incomplete text was apparently found in a dig near Petra. Carbon 14 dating and surrounding pottery shards suggest that the physical text dates to somewhere between 150 and 300 c.e. The gospel is apparently in an obscure dialect of Aramaic which, combined with the incomplete nature of the text, is making a complete translation difficult. Imaginary Review has a discussion along with partial translation.
