Do you ever wonder how you got the Bible you hold in your hand? Of course, you may know the history of that particular Bible, but how was God's Word preserved through time, and translated into the form we have today?
The How We Got the Bible Chart covers 4,000 years of Bible translation history from 2000 BC to 2000 AD. Beginning with God leading Moses to write on tablets, the timeline continues on through later Old Testament writings being preserved on scrolls of parchment and papyrus, and continuing into the first century where the New Testament was recorded on scrolls folded into codices. The rise of the modern printing press and movable type then made the Bible available to common people at reasonable prices.
This Bible history chart makes a wonderful resource for Sunday School classrooms, Christian schools, or pastoral offices.
