Experience the Oldest Bible

For those of you that love books (see my post “Do You Love Reading or Do You Love Books?”), there is a new book online.  The Codex Sinaiticus is one of the most important books in the world according to its Website (http://www.codexsinaiticus.org/en/).

The Codex Sinaiticus is made up of  just over 400 large leaves of prepared animal skin and contains about half of the Old Testament and Apocrypha (the Septuagint), the whole of the New Testament, and two early Christian texts not found in modern Bibles.

I think this Website will primarily be of interest to academics, but for those of you who love books – it is worth a visit.  The Website also contains links to The British Library, the National Library of Russia, St. Catherines Monastery, and the Leipzig University Library.  Have fun with this one booklovers!

    Thanks for the “heads up” on this Bible site, it sounds fascinating for both the religious reading and those interested in the history of the Bible 🙂
