"Ancient" Syriac bible found in Cyprus

Authorities in northern Cyprus believe they have found an ancient version of the Bible written in Syriac, a dialect of the native language of Jesus.

The manuscript was found in a police raid on suspected antiquity smugglers. Turkish Cypriot police testified in a court hearing they believe the manuscript could be about 2,000 years old.

I gots five on it

A sawbuck says that thing less than 1000 years old.

7 days old

The book is 7 days old.

no, it's real...

but when translated it will say, "dude, tell everyone I rose from the dead. lol."

Hmmmmm

"Oh ye of Little Faith"

LOL! I couldn't tell you how old it is or isn't as I wasn't there when it was written, or maybe I was and I'm suffering from loss of memory due to age!

However, if it is original and authentic, it will be very interesting to see what it says, if anything about Jesus. That is is anyone can or will give an honest non-edited translation.

Old bible in Cyprus

the bible will tell us that Yesus not God it self!

Does ANYONE see?

This is just MORE significant proof for the Catastrophism viewpoint! 2000 years, old it fits right in with Jesus!

We didn't come from bacteria. If Uniformitarians were correct about us evolving from bacteria into fish, and fish into mammals and then mammals into humans, then WHY does the fossil record show VERY few connections? WAKE UP PEOPLE! I mean if birds evolved into lizards, then WHY aren't we seeing part lizard part bird fossils! Look in a book! One that doesn't favor one side over the other!

SERIOUSLY

Have you ever heard of a Pterosaur a.k.a Pterodactyl. It is a winged lizard. Or have you seen a picture of an Archaeopteryx which kinda resembles a lizard mixed with a duck. Read before you speak people. I don't know all the answers but I know enough to read before I speak.

evolution

Science addicted--- science has proven evolution get your own thoughts

Evolution.Has it been proved?then why is it still calld a theory

rothers.............Please keep this in your mind. Darwin's theory hasn't been proved.

I am looking like a moron for you now I guess, another idiot who believes in Adam,Moses, Jesus?

Everything you study at school is not a fact.Thought it is taught to us as if it is a fact. Do your research. Find out , if it has been proved, who proved it, what was the proof.

Why people dont believe in this is because the teaching we listen at Church dont fit with Science, so we think the whole thing is a lie.But, it is not so. Compare it with the Qur'an, the book of muslims, about Jesus, Mooses Adam, the shape of earth, Sun as the center of the earth, moon hasnt got its own light,why seasons occur, how they occur, how clouds form, how a male or female child is decied in the womb of a woman, atom is divisible in still tiny objects,earth revolves around the.etc etc. I am not speaking about a science book at school. A holy book which is telling you the truth.Again, it was revealed 1400 years ago, when there were no telescope or microscopes.You wont feel like you are reading a nonsense.You will feel you are reading facts, which the science hasnt been able to find until recently(100 years ago). If you dont find it fitting , then you then you can make what ever conclusions you want.

There were a group of peopl who used their own minds and changed the word of God, Gospel.Made Church a business to make money making peopl believe what ever they say.Othewise, why would Bible contain, pornography, incest or a simple question.Commit any sin, dont worry, a man called Jesus died for your sin, so, you are free to do kill people, do incest, anything.
Another simple question.How can god die in the hands of people.He is not able to save himself.How can he help us?

Here are some videos which you will find interesting.Not as a guy belonging to any religion. As a student of science.

Challange

any yeah....Qur'an also speaks about Gospel. It says it was a truth too.People corrupted it for material wealth. Not only Bible, all the books like Torah etc were pure in original form.People corrupted them.

Now, god has made man capable of recognizing the truth.And yeah, by the way, Qur'an is the only book in the world which challanges the whole human kind to try to corrupt it if they can.It will remain in its original script till the day of resurrection. Its a challange from God.
