7Q5 Fragment

Thought by Theide to be a verse from the
Gospel of Mark


There is much controversy about this fragment. Carsten Theide and others have written books about this fragment and some others claiming that it is a portion of the book of Mark. The academic community generally has rejected Theide's theory and reconstruction of the Greek letters. All that can be said of the fragment for certain is that it is Greek writing and that it was found in Cave 7 at Qumran.
