Codex Sinaitcus

Anybody heard of the latest developments. There was an articule on the front page of the Dallas Morning News about it. I didn't read it, a friend told me about it. Its supposed to be the worlds oldest bible, and will so be published on the web.

I'm a man. I can change, if I have to, I guess.

I read the article. The Codex Sinaitus is the oldest verifiable bible. It was in an Egyptian temple, when in the 1850's people from Russia, France, England and one other country split up the texts and stole them. Now their going to be scanned and digitally reunited.

Article as says the text of the Codex varies greatly from the modern bible.

I think this is a god thing, we'll finialy be able to see how the bible was changed in translations. I don't think it will change the basic message of salvation though.

The article I read refers to the 12 verses that have been added at the end of Mark. If this is what they are refering as "varies greatly" then its no big deal 'cause people who have done any type of bible study already know that the verses have been added after the fact.
