As a work of fact.. it is woefully inaccurate in many parts and in many
The earliest complete copy of anything approaching what we call the
bible is the Codex sinaiticus.
To take just one example the codex contains a copy of St Mark's Gospel,
handwritten in Greek more than 1,600 years ago, which ends abruptly
after Jesus's disciples discover the empty tomb. Mark's last line has
them leaving in fear and makes no mention of the Resurrection. The part
of the gospel which is most important for the Christian faith is an
addition made many centuries later.
Visitors to www.codexsinaiticus.org, can browse the full text of the
codex as well as the many translations and the thousands of corrections
that were made to the Bible.
