As most sheep are only about two to three feet long, it took an entire flock of sheep to make just one Torah scroll.The Jewish scribes who painstakingly produced each scroll were perfectionists.
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.
though there is some scholarly evidence to indicate that the Old Testament Book of Job may actually be the oldest book in the Bible.
The Old Testament scriptures were written in ancient Hebrew, a language substantially different than the Hebrew of today.
No real justification was ever given for the removal of these ancient Jewish writings from before the time of Christ, which had remained untouched and part of every Bible for nearly two thousand years.
