I learned this on the internet. Granted, I had to read hundreds of pages to get a good understanding of it. Don't take my word for it. Search it
yourself, if you are worried about it.
Just because they did not have an internet back in those old times, they had an operating social network. These people communicated and there are
records. The main players are known people and we have evidence of them in their own writings and accounts of them from others. They were people of
high integrity, and independent as far as not having anyone not in their own circle of associates getting involved in their work.
What I am talking about is the making of a Bible. It may seem odd but no such thing existed for hundreds of years. There were scattered manuscripts
around the Empire. They had to be collected and copied and arranged until they finally, after great effort which was the life work of many scholars,
had a Bible, meaning a book. One single bound volume with all the books of the Bible in it. Interestingly enough, by the time they had it perfected,
it was almost when they invented the printing presses that made it famous.
