the Codex Sinaiticus
I'm not sure where to post this. Maybe the history section would be better but no one ever fuckin' looks at the history section.Angry

Anyway I found the Codex Sinaiticus in a virtual form on the British Library website. It's pretty cool. These are "Extracts from the 1600 year old Bible." I think it only goes to page 129 or so.

You can click on the page and it turns the page and click on the "read" button and it tells you about each page. There is mention on how scribes used different translations and some things were changed. I'm curious what some of you biblical scholars think of the comments in the ''read" button.

It take a bit of time to load.

Shakespeare's Comedy of Errors.... on Donald J. Trump:

He is deformed, crooked, old, and sere,
Ill-fac’d, worse bodied, shapeless every where;
Vicious, ungentle, foolish, blunt, unkind,
Stigmatical in making, worse in mind.

RE: the Codex Sinaiticus
Nice if you read Greek.

Of even more interest is this:

Quote:It is little-known that the two oldest-known Bibles in the world today not only violently differ from each other, but also provide major conflictions with all modern-day Bibles. Those two Bibles are the Codex Sinaiticus, known in academic circles as 'Aleph' (Manuscript No. 43725 in the British Library) and the Codex Vaticanus, known as Codex 'B' and held in the Vatican Bible (Vat. gr. 1209).

Atheism is NOT a Religion. It's A Personal Relationship With Reality!
