Oldest Surviving Copy of the Old Testament Recognized as World Treasure
The oldest surviving copy of the Hebrew Bible has been officially recognized by the United Nations Educations, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) as a world treasure.
The Christian Post reports that the manuscript, called the Aleppo Codex, has been added to UNESCO‚Äôs International Memory of the World Register, a list of the most important discoveries in human history.
All current versions of the Old Testament are thought to originate from this ancient manuscript which was written around the year 930 A.D.
The Codex has been moved from place to place and around 190 of its pages are thought to be missing....

G'day Dave, Wa Hey, it is the Lord's Day just starting for us, and I am shortly to leave home. Thanks for your prayers, brother. Interesting texts for you. I especially love the psalms more and more as each year passes. What a wealth of truth and experience are found therein.
The Lord has put on my heart to share with the brethren and sisters Matthew 22:37-38 and thus showing the normal Christian life. If any of us have an inkling to love anything, anything, more than our gracious and redeeming God, I trust the Spirit will show us all, including myself, that we may see from whence we have fallen and seek to put it right.
Bro Christopher it sounds cold, from Mike's report.God bless mate. :-). Bro John . Psalm 121 and 1cor, 14:13/14 was the basis for our worship this morning, only short one today couple of hours, then broke bread, and prayed for all you guy's . Lord bless, hope you all awake to God blessed day. :-) Ms, will listen to Don's sermon this arvo as part of fellowship.

To enslave English readers to a single translation which is often archaic and obscure, occasionally wholly unintelligible and sometimes plainly inaccurate when other versions that remedy these defects are easily accessible is a monument to mere human tradition and is, as it were, to spit in the face of the very purpose of Bible translation, and to deny to the mere English reader the fuller knowledge of God and His revelation he could have if, IF such obstacles were removed by use of a revised translation which conforms to current English usage, and the infallible standard of the original text.

Hi Dave, not sure who you were talking to, but just in case...I commented about understanding what they were talking about, thanks to John. Before that, I had no idea what they were trying to say. I was confused and was glad he simplified it. Kind of a brain twister.

What you need to do, if you don't yet see the point, is to read some textual critics and see what they mean by "the Bible contains God's word". That means that Isaiah could be God's words, but Joel maybe not God's words.
But if you say, "the Bible IS God's word", then all within its pages are the very words of God.
I know it sounds like a meaningless play on words, but there are people out there who promote a Bible which is not inerrant, nor can be trusted in every verse. This is why there is such a free-for-all in many churches.

There are some enemies of the accepted view of scripture who would try to tell us that the Bible "contains" the word of God. In other words, if you read the scriptures, you may find God's word there, somewhere. Such say that God's word is "in the Bible", which for me anyway is an incorrect view and part of the apostate plan of the devil to get folks to doubt the word of God.
But a simple statement like: "the Bible is the word of God", is far better, because it means that whatever Psalm you are reading, whatever Prophet you are studying, whatever Gospel or Epistle you are in, the words that you are reading are the words of God, trustworthy and true, and therefore ought to be heeded, obeyed, rested on, trusted in, and in general be edified and sanctified by.

Thankyou ms, will listen tonight. Thankyou hmmm that would be nice. :-) God bless, Christopher, Annie been listening to sermons from here flat out and following some threads. She is a bit shy at first, unlike my foot in mouth approach :-), Anyway she'll come out of her shell eventually and you won't be able to shut her up. Lord bless guys.
Not wanting to butt in, but I think there's just a misunderstanding going on. I hope this takes another direction. Ok, butting back out. Oh, and Dave...looking forward to Annie's testamony whenever she has time if she wants to.
