If anyone is interested, the reference here is, I believe, to Kim's dating
of p46 --on purely paleographic grounds-- to c. 75-85CE (i.e. as opposed to
the "standard" dating of ~200CE). Some --e.g. Philip Comfort-- use this
dating as a basis for much of their work.
For the complete reference --and a number of arguments as to why this
dating is almost certainly incorrect-- please the discussion in the (new)
appendix to the 3rd edition of Bruce Metzger's _Text of the NT_.
