Oldest New Testament Heads To Cyberspace


More than 1,600 years after it was written in Greek, one of the oldest copies of the Bible will become globally accessible online for the first time this week. On Thursday sections of the Codex Sinaiticus will be available on the Internet. Images of the Gospel of Mark, several Old Testament books, and notes on the work will appear on http://www.codex-sinaiticus.net/ as a first step towards publishing the entire manuscript online by next July. Dating from around 350 AD, the document is believed by experts to be the oldest known copy of the Bible, along with the Codex Vaticanus, another ancient version of the Bible.
