Books predating the bible

In 382 AD, the early church father Jerome translated the New Testament from its original Greek into Latin.

This translation became known as the “Latin Vulgate”, (“Vulgate” meaning “vulgar” or “common”).

When the entire Pentateuch is present on a scroll, it is called a “Torah”.

An entire Torah Scroll, if completely unraveled, is over 150 feet long!

By the end of the First Century AD, the New Testament had been completed.

It was preserved in Greek on Papyrus, a thin paper-like material made from crushed and flattened stalks of a reed-like plant.

This was because only the priests were educated to understand Latin, and this gave the church ultimate power… Pope Leo the Tenth established a practice called the “selling of indulgences” as a way to extort money from the people.

Is it the word of some other god before Christianity? Or does plagiarism.

  3. Preparing the Way The English Bible before King James. THERE are three great Book-religions—Judaism, Christianity, and Mohammedanism. Other religions have their sacred writings, but they do not hold them in the same regard as do these three. Buddhism and Confucianism count their books rather records of their.
