A British-based academic has uncovered a fragment of the world's oldest Bible hiding underneath the binding of an 18th-century book.
Nikolas Sarris spotted a previously unseen section of the Codex Sinaiticus, which dates from about AD350, as he was trawling through photographs of manuscripts in the library of St Catherine's Monastery in Egypt.
The Codex, handwritten in Greek on animal skin, is the earliest known version of the Bible. Leaves from the priceless tome are divided between four institutions, including St Catherine's Monastery and the British Library, which has held the largest section of the ancient Bible since the Soviet Union sold its collection to Britain in 1933....

Ha! What a beetroot!
Still chasing those imaginary cultists on Sermonaudio forums eh Jim? Ah well, you'll grow up soon, because if you're a Christian, God will sanctify you, sure.
But if you want to take advice from an ol' turnip, avoid men like Wallace and Grommitt, and Westcott and Hot, and any others who follow these men, especially the Catholics among them.
It's only a matter of time, and I can exercise the utmost patience (longsuffering) because of God's grace which is upon me.
Hidemi, why does the AV get so much wrong such as Genesis 1:1 wrong like so many other verses? No doubt one of the reasons its on the list of Bibles not to get, Comparing Bible Translations--Conclusions. Apparently the the later versions have it correct, and the AV is wrong as usual. What does the marginal notes in the KJV say?

For there are three which beare recorde in heauen, the father, the worde, and the holy ghost, and these three are one. 1 John 5:7 THE BISHOPS BIBLE 1568
The funny thing that Jim doesn't mention is how the Nasb totally gets the first verse of Genesis wrong. Verse 1 says "Heavens" and yet in verse 8, it says "God called the expanse Heaven". And in verse 9 it says "Heavens" again. So which is it Jim? The KJV got it right.
The NLT changes "Heaven" to "sky". The NKJV makes the same error as the NASB. The NIV Changes "Heaven" to "sky" The Amplified follows the Nasb.
Since some of these modern versions do not agree with each other, they can't all be right.
Another example is Hebrews 4:8. The KJV says: Heb 4:8 For if Jesus had given them rest, then would he not afterward have spoken of another day. Yet, the NASB says "Joshua". After reading the chapter it cannot be "Joshua" What sayeth thou, Jim?

Thank you Hidemi
And here's another one from a so-called KJV-onlyist.
For there are thre which beare recorde in heauen: the father, the worde, and the holy goost, & these thre are one. 1 John 5:7 Miles Coverdale Bible 1531
Oh I do love all these translations, and am glad that the King James updated all the difficult spellings and became the most easy to read Bible in the whole world (according to the Flesch-Kincaid grammar test).
The squawking parrot Jim Lincoln, I notice, is still referring to good Christian men here on this forum as KJV-onlyists! Wow, that's one of biggest strawmen I've ever seen built on SermonAudio. I don't know how he has the audacity to continue with his ridiculous squawking statements.
Maybe he gets paid with pieces-of-eight from Zonderfan or Nelson or some other big money-grubbing publisher.
Now Jim, think FILTHY LUCRE or FINANCIAL GAIN, and meditate on these things for five years until you see with your eyes, hear with your ears, and turn and repent.

Your either an unthinking parrot or a really annoying broken record!
Why yes, John UK, thanks to King James Onlyism, I found that the AV is a Catholicized Bible with what one could call Catholic New Testament Apocrypha, [like the word "Bishop",Hidemi, another Catholicism pushed by King Jas.]
This is Jhesus Crist, that cam bi watir and blood; not in water oonli, but in watir and blood. And the spirit is he that witnessith, that Crist is treuthe. For thre ben, that yyuen witnessing in heuene, the Fadir, the Sone, and the Hooli Goost; and these thre ben oon. 8 `And thre ben, that yyuen witnessing in erthe, the spirit, water, and blood; and these thre ben oon. If we resseyuen the witnessing of men, the witnessing of God is more; for this is the witnessing of God, that is more, for he witnesside of his sone. 1 John 5:6-9 Wycliffe Bible 1395
Oops, there's another good Bible I've quoted, that makes three now! Surely I can't be a King James Onlyism can I?
Well, according to Jim Lincoln I am, but then, who on earth is Jim Lincoln? A modern-version onlyist!
Jim/Gil wrote: "The (AV) translators wanted the Bible in contemporary English!"
But I don't think they wanted a Bible in contemporary English based on corrupted, tampered with manuscripts or texts prepared by men (like Bruce Metzger) who admittedly don't believe most of what's in Scripture.
BTW - My new TBS Classic Concord AV arrived today and I LOVE it. I can't wait to dig into it tonight and attempt to read all of that incomprehensible language (according to Jim/Gil) and obsolete verbiage (according to Jim/Gil) that has so blessed my soul and been a glowing light unto my feet for most of my life!
This is that Iesus Christ that came by water and blood: not by water onely, but by water and blood: and it is that Spirit, that beareth witnesse: for that Spirit is trueth. For there are three, which beare recorde in heauen, the Father, the Worde, and the holy Ghost: and these three are one. And there are three, which beare record in the earth, the spirit, and the water and the blood: and these three agree in one. If we receiue the witnesse of men, the witnesse of God is greater: for this is the witnesse of God, which he testified of his Sonne. 1 John 5:6-9 Geneva Bible 1587
Ooooer, I've just quoted from two good translations.
Can't be a KJV-onlyism, can I?
Not that Jim will acknowledge that, being blinkered and all, and a follower of the wretched 'modern scholar' Bruce Metzger.
