Please excuse me if this has already been pointed out, but I seem to
remember some discussion of Thiede's thoughts regarding the Magdalen
Papyrus and 7Q5 (the alleged scrap of Mark found at Qumran). In the midst
of the previous discussion, I believe someone inquired regarding photos or
images of the manuscripts in question. Well, I just cataloged Thiede's
_Eyewitness to Jesus: Amazing New Manuscript Evidence About the Origin of
the Gospels_ (New York: Doubleday, 1996), and it contains some clear
pictures of the material (including a close-up of 7Q5). So, anyone wanting
a pretty good look at these manuscripts should check out the book.
