Regarding the report about an early papyrus fragment of Hebrews:

According to a message sent by Papathomas to another list, the report in the
Dutch newspaper is substantially inaccurate. The small fragment (3,3 x 5,2
cm), which preserves portions of Heb 2:9-11 and 3:3-6, is to be dated, he
says, almost certainly to the 6th or 7th century.
