The Sequel to A Lamp in the Dark
The Untold History of the Bible!
Tares Among the Wheat
Enter a Mysterious World of Ancient Manuscripts, Assailed by Forgeries, Fakes, and Theological Intrigue of the Highest Order

In the 19th century, a revolution in biblical scholarship was prompted by the publication of a never-before-seen manuscript calledCodex Sinaiticus. The work was allegedly "discovered" by a German scholar named Constantine von Tischendorf, who declared this to be the oldest Bible ever found. Tischendorf said he found the work in a rubbish basket at a Greek Orthodox monastery in Egypt. While many in the academic world did not fully believe his story, they were willing to accept his claims about the antiquity of the codex.

Yet shortly after his discovery was published, a renowned Greek paleographer named Constantine Simonides came forward and declared that the manuscript was no ancient text at all, but had been created by him in 1840. The controversy surrounding these events is, perhaps, the most incredible untold chapter in Bible history. It involves Jesuits, the Pope, a high-minded German, a committee of Anglo Romanists, and a mysterious Greek patriot. It is a story that (while quite true and well documented) a vast majority of modern academics know nothing about. Yet the subject matter dramatically impacts the world of biblical scholarship, even to this present hour. Most of what today's scholars believe about manuscript evidence is based on the events of this era, and the footnotes in your Bible are the proof of it.

    Rescued from a rubbish pile? Really?

    Posted by VSV on May 23rd 2015

    This is a fascinating account of the "discovery" of Codex Sinaiticus, which was supposedly in the process of being used as kindling for the fire in a monastery in Egypt. The producer does a very good job of weaving together information from many different sources, and the re-enactments of events are well done. However, there are still many unanswered questions. Why would monks, who surely knew Greek, burn any part of the Bible unless they considered it an error-ridden forgery? If Simonedes created it as a gift for the Russian monarch, why was it still in the monastery? Why was it not in his possession all along? Would it not be possible with modern dating methods to settle the debate once and for all that it is not ancient, but in fact a nineteenth century document? Yet, this account is very interesting, thought-provoking, and definitely worth considering. Fortunately, there are many other early manuscripts available that allow Bible scholars to examine variations of the Greek text.
    But modern critics will also pounce on any variation to support their assertions that Holy Scripture is "worthless."
