Gospel of Mark inside an Egyptian Sarcophagus!

A Mummy Mask may reveal the oldest known copy of one of the four sanctified Gospels of Jesus Christ, in this case the Gospel of Mark,

This seems odd to us, but apparently with the scarcity of papyrus it was not uncommon to find the papyrus used in the interior lining of a mummy's sarcophagus, and the ones used in this particular mask seem to be rather intriguing. Read this story from NBC News for more details.
