Codex Sinaiticus Online

One of the oldest and most important Greek manuscripts of the New Testament is now online. It contains the earliest complete copy of the New Testament. This is a marvelous site. With other scholars and those interested in the history of the Christian scriptures, you can view the text with translation and, as the site proclaims, experience the oldest bible to survive antiquity.

NPR's Robert Siegel has a brief interview with the project's chairman, Scot McKendrick, on the importance of this online version. Listen here.
