Codex Sinaiticus Project

Codex Sinaiticus (http://www.codexsinaiticus.org/)

Codex Sinaiticus is one of the most important books in the world. Handwritten well over 1600 years ago, the manuscript contains the Christian Bible in Greek, including the oldest complete copy of the New Testament. Its heavily corrected text is of outstanding importance for the history of the Bible and the manuscript - the oldest substantial book to survive Antiquity - is of supreme importance for the history of the book.

The british museum is putting there copy on line on the 24th of July 2008 . There is going to be translated text (http://www.codexsinaiticus.org/website01_Kopie.jpg) along with it. I see a lot of night time reading ahead of me. I'm excited because the cult of Jesus really took off among the Hellenize Jews and their neighbors, so Greek would have been the language to use write down the stories of the followers.

I want to see what was important to write down, what was considered essential
