I came across this and thought it would be interesting to look at. It is suppose to be a book over 1600 years old.
It has Greek to English Translation on some of it.
If you think G/A 001 is interesting, check out this site: http://www.csntm.org/manuscript
Though it lacks the transcriptions and translations that the Codex Sinaiticus Project has, if you are interested in critical biblical scholarship I can't stress enough how important (and helpful) learning Koine Greek is.
You're welcome. I have a ton of useful links. Like this one: http://rosetta.reltech.org/TC/index.html#page=home It is an open online peer-reviewed journal on biblical criticism. Bart D. Ehrman is one of the editors.
On the audio player on the entry page there is currently a track of Christopher Hitchens reading a lengthy passage. In part of it he references the 'dead sea scrolls' and the forgery/improvisation of the Pericope Adulterae.
The first time I heard about "super old bibles" that contradicted "the true bible" I was actually horrified, LOL! (I was Christian then, in case you are wondering)
I know if I were a Christian these manuscripts would scare the crap out of me. One of my favourite manuscripts is the Codex Bezae. You want to talk about strange textual variants, check out Mark 1:40-45.
Also, I love the people who are all about the KJV being completely inerrant. We now know that the KJV is based on what is considered one of the worst sources, an incredibly flawed 12th century manuscript tradition.
