Worlds Oldest Bible Now Available Online

The surviving pages of the world’s oldest Christian Bible have been reunited online. The early work, known as the Codex Sinaiticus (“the book from Sinai”), has been housed in four separate locations around the world for more than 150 years. As of last week, it is now available for anyone to peruse at the Web site www.codexsinaiticus.org, allowing scholars and other readers to get a closer look at this unique treasure. The only other Bible that rivals Codex Sinaiticus in age is Codex Vaticanus, which was written around the same time, but lacks parts of the New Testament. Codex Sinaiticus is the oldest book that contains a complete New Testament and is only missing parts of the Old Testament and the Aprocrypha. [ABC News]
