Hi Suzie,

Interesting.  Here is a segment from the transcript 'How We Got The Bible.'

(click on the pic for a close up view)

The Codex Sinaiticus is a treasure beyond price. Produced in the middle of the fourth century, the Codex is one of the two earliest Christian Bibles. Within its beautifully handwritten Greek text are the earliest surviving copy of the complete New Testament and the earliest and best copies of some of the Jewish scriptures.
All the texts written down in the Codex are in Greek. They include the translation of the Old Testament known as the Septuagint. The Greek text is written using a form of capital or upper case letters known as Biblical majuscule and without word division. The pages of the Codex are of prepared animal skin called parchment.
--------------------------------------------------------

It being in Greek might pose a bit of a problem  :(

mercy, peace and love
Kat

Kat,
Thanks for your reply.
 According to the article:
Quote
Selected translations will be available in English and German for those not conversant in ancient Greek.
Hopefully they will someday have it all translated to English.

Peace,
Suzie

I had one semester of Greek and got a B, I think.  I wonder if they will let me have a crack at it?   :D

Heb 10:32  But you must continue to remember those earlier days, how after you were enlightened you endured a hard and painful struggle.
