Timeline of Bible Translation History

1,400 BC: The first written Word of God: The Ten Commandments delivered to Moses.

500 BC: Completion of All Original Hebrew Manuscripts which make up The 39 Books of the Old Testament.

200 BC: Completion of the Septuagint Greek Manuscripts which contain The 39 Old Testament Books AND 14 Apocrypha Books.

1ST Century AD: Completion of All Original Greek Manuscripts which make up The 27 Books of the New Testament.

Comment:  Now the first real translation that we can follow back in any language, that has been reproduced like the Greek manuscripts, would be the Vulgate in 382AD.  But we are back 200 years before that and possibly the oldest translation from the Greek known, is the Peshito/Peshitta.  It was translated from Greek into Syriac as early as 160-180 AD.  Some refer to it as the Aramaic, but it’s Syriac.  They don’t have a copy that goes back that far, but they have a historian quoting from the Peshito in Syriac in 1660 AD or somewhere in that area.  So if he is quoting from it, it must have existed, see what I’m saying.  But the earliest copy that they have is maybe around the 5th century or so.  Pershito means - simple or easy to understand.  So it’s a very precise, almost word for word translation. 
This is a English  translation of the Peshito, it’s called the ’Queen of the Versions’ and  ‘The Syriac Vulgate.’   The reason they call it the Syriac Vulgate is because it apparently was a renovation of all these poorly done scriptures that were floating around. 
Some say this was translated at Antioch.  Remember in the Scripture the followers of Jesus Christ were first called Christians at Antioch.  So it would make sense that they would want to have a translation of Scripture in their native tongue. 

315 AD: Athenasius, the Bishop of Alexandria, identifies the 27 books of the New Testament which are today recognized as the canon of scripture.

Comment:  But it isn’t that he said, ’okay these are the books.’  Those were the books that he got.  These were passed on for 200 years from after Peter and John.  So they knew there were 27 books.

Dating and Authors for the Books of the Bible


-------------------------about 1400 BC

Joshua - shortly after

Judges - c. 10th century BC

Ruth - c. 10th century BC

1-2 Samuel - 8th-6th century BC

1-2 Kings - 6th-5th century BC

1-2 Chronicles - 400 BC would be the earliest possible date for composition

Esther - 5th century BC

Job - c. 10th century BC at the earliest

Lamentations - is an eye witness account of babylons destroying Jerusalem in 586 BC

Psalms - written by many authors at different times

Proverbs - written mostly by solomon (900BC) but some may be older

Ecclesiastes - started by solomon but added to from 900BC to about (?)350 BC

Ezra-Nehemiah - group of letters put together as books (one book in the Torah) (?)400 BC

Song of Songs - Soloman 900 BC

Jeremiah - Ezekiel - about 600 BC

Daniel - in his lifetime between 605 and 530 BC

Hosea - attributed to Hosea. His prophesies cover the period from 753-715 BC.

Joel - attributed to Joel. The date of the book is uncertain, with dates ranging from the early pre-exilic (800's BC) to late post-exilic period (500-400 BC).

Amos - attributed to Amos. Dates between 767 and 753 BC.

Obadiah - attributed to Obadiah. Dates between 847 and 841 BC.

Jonah - attributed to Jonah. Dates to the 700's BC.

Micah - attributed to Micah. Dates between 740 and 695 BC.

Nahum - attributed to Nahum. Two different dates are generally accepted as possibilities for Nahum's ministry: 661-612 BC or 722-701 BC.

Habakkuk - attributed to Habakkuk. Dates to sometime between 612 and 587 BC.

Zephaniah - attributed to Zephaniah. Dates sometime during the reign of Josiah (640-609 BC)

Haggai - attributed to Haggai. It is possible to date his prophesies very exactly, since he gave us the precise day he uttered his prophesies:
Haggai 1:1 - August 29, 520 BC
Haggai 1:15 - September 21, 520 BC
Haggai 2:19-20 - December 18, 520 BC

Zechariah - chapters 1-8 are attributed to Zechariah and can be dated precisely.
Zech 1:1 - October, 520 BC
Zech 1:7 - February 15, 519 BC
Zech 7:1 - December 7, 518 BC
Chapters 9-14 were not written by Zechariah and cannot be easily dated (that they were not written by Zechariah is clear from both internal and external evidence).
Chapters 9-11 were written by Jeremiah, according to Matthew 27:9-10, which quotes Zecharaiah 11:12-13 and attributes it to Jeremiah. The date would then be sometime between 627 and 580 BC.
Chapters 12-14 are titled "an oracle" and are attributed to no one.

Malachi - based on Mark 1:2-3, the book called "Malachi" was apparently actually written by Isaiah, since there the author of Mark quotes from "Malachi," but attributes it to Isaiah. The title "Malachi" taken from 1:1 is simply the Hebrew phrase "my messenger" and the word is so translated in 3:1.
The date of the book would then be sometime between 740 and 690 BC.

New Testament

Matthew - attributed to Matthew. Probably written sometime between AD 55 and 75.

Mark - attributed to John Mark. Probably written before AD 70, and before the books of Matthew or Luke were composed.

Luke - attributed to Luke. Since the book of Acts (also attributed to Luke) was written afterward, and since Acts was apparently written before Paul's execution during the reign of Nero, the book of Luke is apparently relatively early, perhaps before AD 60.

John - attributed to John. Probably composed between AD 85 and 90, though some scholars have suggested dates as early as AD 45 and as late as AD 110.

Acts - attributed to Luke. Probably composed around AD 64 (Paul's imprisonment in Rome was from AD 61-63).
Historically Paul was believed to be nearly blind at the end of his ministry so though the words are Paul's another hand may have penned them.
Romans - attributed to Paul. Written AD 56 or 57.

1 Corinthians - attributed to Paul. Written AD 55.

2 Corinthians - attributed to Paul. Written AD 56.

Galatians - attributed to Paul. Written AD 52

Ephesians - attributed to Paul. Written AD 63.

Philippians - attributed to Paul. Written between AD 59 and AD 61.

Colossians - attributed to Paul. Written AD 62.

1 Thessalonians - attributed to Paul. Written AD 50.

2 Thessalonians - attributed to Paul. Written AD 50.

1 Timothy - attributed to Paul. Written between AD 62 and AD 67.

2 Timothy - attributed to Paul. Written between AD 62 and AD 67.

Titus - attributed to Paul. Written AD 63.

Philemon - attributed to Paul. Written between AD 56 and AD 62.

Hebrews - written between AD 66 and AD 70 (certainly written before the destruction of Jerusalem AD 70).

James - attributed to James. Written between AD 45 and AD 50.

1 Peter - attributed to Peter. Written between AD 62 and AD 64.

2 Peter - attributed to Peter. Written between AD 64 and AD 68.
Though the words were definitely Peter's they may have been penned by Mark who was Peters assistant in his ministry.

1 John - attributed to John. Written between AD 85 and AD 90.

2 John - attributed to John. Written AD 90.

3 John - attributed to John. Written AD 90.

Jude - attributed to Jude. Written between AD 60 and AD 65.

Revelation - attributed to John. Written between AD 54 and AD 68 or perhaps after Johns other books as late as AD 92 depending on how many times John was on Patmos legend states John died on Patmos but no substantial evidence to back this up.

Note: Dates for inventions are often controversial. Inventions are often invented by several inventors around the same time, or may be invented in an impractical form many years before another inventor improves the invention into a practical form. Where there is ambiguity, the date of the first known working version of the invention is used here.
