LONDON, England (CNN) -- The world's oldest known Christian Bible goes online Monday -- but the 1,600-year-old text doesn't match the one you'll find in churches today.
Discovered in a monastery in the Sinai desert in Egypt more than 160 years ago, the handwritten Codex Sinaiticus includes two books that are not part of the official New Testament and at least seven books that are not in the Old Testament.
The New Testament books are in a different order, and include numerous handwritten corrections -- some made as much as 800 years after the texts were written, according to scholars who worked on the project of putting the Bible online. The changes range from the alteration of a single letter to the insertion of whole sentences.

This probably still will be translated to help the church and politicians get their way. The true, TRUE, bible is probably in a vault in the Vatican where the missing link in evoultion is. The true bible probably says alot of things that would make every religion agree with it. Maybe it willreveal a few truths like: maybe that psychic abilities, alchemy and magic aren`t evil, there wasn`t a god just ailens with abilities, gay is ok, the universe and earth isn`t just 6000 years old.
John 14(old version)
16 And I will entreat the Father, and anther Advocate will he give you, that he may be with you for ever,
16And I will pray the Father, and he shall give you another Comforter, that he may abide with you for ever;

Maybe it does not contain all the books or parts of the books because they did not exist at that time and were made up later?
