Some Bible fun facts today.  There are 66 books in the Bible; 39 in the Old Testament and 27 in the New Testament.  The word testament simply means contract or covenant.  The Bible was written by over 40 authors over a period of 1500 years.  Here’s a bit of irony; the Bible is the most shoplifted book in the world. The Bible is also the best selling book in the world.  The Bible has been translated into more that two thousand languages with countless partial translations and audio translations for unwritten languages.  The Codex Vaticanus, which dates from the first half of the fourth Century is the oldest and most complete manuscript of the Bible.  You’ll find it in the library of the Vatican in Rome.  The first English translation was in 1382 by John Wycliff.  The Bible was first printed in 1454 by Johannes Gutenberg who invented the “type mold” for the printing press. It was also the first book ever printed.  If you’d like to learn more visit bible resources dot org.
