Codex Sinaiticus Bible Was Written By A Woman

by | 6th, July 2009

bibleTHE 800-odd pages of The Codex Sinaiticus, the world’s oldest surviving Bible, written in Greek in the fourth century AD, is now online.

The Codex differs from later version of the Bible. St Mark’s Gospel makes no mention of the resurrected Jesus Christ, or “omits”, as Christians are wont to have it.

Lucinda has not yet been abbreviated to Luke, and the images of Jesus working as a scarecrow in his father’s fields have been removed due to a legal battle over copyright with Getty images.

That spat led to an artist adapting the image to a cross, and taking artistic licence with the Roman boys who would turn up and throw grass seeds so they stuck in Jesus beard.

More horrific Revelations to follow – or Relations as they were originally known…
