The best, most up-to-date Bible information on the web? Larry Hurtado's Blog. Check it out on some early graffito, which may, indeed, be the earliest Christian writing, dating to the early 2nd century CE or even earlier. He is reporting on Roger Bagnall's new book. Hurtado writes,

ισοψηφα
κυριος  ω
πιστις  ω
The two untranslated Greek words, for those who do not read Greek, are κυριος, which means "Lord," and πιστις, which means "faith."  Do read the rest of this blog post, as it is a fascinating look into some (probable) early Christian evidence.
