The Codex Sinaiticus, the world's oldest Bible, is now online in its entirety!


www.codexsinaiticus.org/ 


Written in ancient Greek, some of it has been translated into English.  It contain's for the most part the New Testament, although some of the Old Testament is available as well.


Interestingly, the Gospel of Mark end's a bit earlier than the one we now have in the Bible?


Yesterrday, the site received so many 'hits' that it crashed, I hope they get it back up and running today!


Very interesting folks, don't you think?


God bless,


Sandy

I read most of the Gospel according to (St.) Matthew that was translated into English, there are different words used, but the message is the same. 


Very interesting!



God bless, Sandy
