Summary
Date: 100 B.C.E. - 50 B.C.E.

Commonly referred to as the ‘Resurrection Fragment’, this writing consists of sixteen fragments and is dated to the beginning of the first century BCE. The writing comes across as a composition in verse akin to the poetry of the late biblical period. As in the New Testament Gospels, healing and resurrection are linked to the idea of the Kingdom of God.
