 I assumed it was the 'Good Samaritan' story (male) that many people

 I asked someone who is very knowledgeable about Christian history.

 [I only went to wiki]
 Anyway in the article it seems that at least 3 say it is this
'Diatesseron', 3 say it's a different version of the 'Harmony of the 4
Gospels' and 1 claims it is a completely different Christian text.
 But all agree that it was written by the Christian writer Tatiana (this
spelling is the main one from google).
 So perhaps someone:) with an opposing viewpoint could *easily* find a
*reliable* cite(s) that disclaims it's Tatiana writings?
But they would also have to find some *reliable* sources that translate
this parchment so that there is no (zero) NT text within it (A Rabbi
walks into a bar with a duck and...:)
 If not, then it would still be a Christian text found at *this site*.
 So we have a site that has OT frescos, NT frescos, a large basin too
small to be a bathing tub in an elaborate setting/location
(baptistisms-Christians-major event) and a parchment with Christian text
on it.
 And found in the same house structure?
 Sounds *exactly* like the Iliad to me:-).
 Thanks for the additional info about the parchment. Regards, Walter
