The oldest surviving full text of the New Testament is the beautifully written Codex Sinaiticus, which was “discovered” at the St Catherine monastery at the base of Mt Sinai in Egypt in the 1840s and 1850s. Dating from circa 325-360 CE, it is not known where it was scribed – perhaps Rome or Egypt.

The Bible has been translated into many languages from the biblical languages of Hebrew, Aramaic and Greek.

Who owns the Bible?
Zondervan sells a lot of bibles in a lot of different languages. And so it turns out that Zondervan, owned by News Corp, is the largest publisher of Bibles in the world. The biggest seller of Bibles is the same company that owns Fox News, HarperCollins, Dow Jones, 20th Century Fox, and others.
Did God write the Bible?
In my experience as a Catholic priest, one of the most commonly held accounts of biblical inspiration among Christians is that God “dictated” the Bible. According to this view, sometimes called the verbal dictation theory, God dictated each word of the sacred text to a human author who simply wrote it down.
Is the Bible inspired by God?
The Catholic Church holds the Bible as inspired by God, but that it does not view God as the direct author of the Bible, in the sense that he does not put a ‘ready-made’ book in the mind of the inspired person.
