Oldest would probably be the Silver Scrolls, which date from about 650 BCE.

But from content, when compared with known archaeology, king lists and early history, some well referenced Biblical texts appear to be contemporaneous with the rise of Babylon and suggest an earlier authorship.

That being said, they were written over what is presumed tobe 1,500-3,000 years, by the hand of many authors, and may have been added to along the way, which muddies the waters regarding chronology.

That being said, I'm pretty sure that the earliest writers would have had no concept that they could still be in circulation 5,000 years later. For an old set of books, they still seem to hold meaning to very many people.
