This is just a little bit of trivia for those who are interested. Yesterday I visited the British Library and revisited the area where they have the biblical manuscripts (and many others). They have both the codex Sinaiticus and Alexandrinus which for a long time were the oldest manuscripts available and are still the oldest (almost) complete mss of the bible. Anyway, in light of the recent Sinaiticus Project they had both volumes (Old & New Testament) on display and there were interesting observations on both.
The New Testament was open at the end of the gospel of John and it had this commentary:
When first written, the Gospel concluded without the final verse (John 21:25). However, even before the ink had dried on the concluding title, the scribe washed it out, wrote out the final verse and added a new title. Traces of the earlier text have been observed under strong ultra violet light.
The Old Testament was open at psalms 9-13 and it had this to say:
Unlike the prose books of the Old and New Testament, which are presented in four narrow columns on each page, these verse texts are written in two wide columns. This arrangement allows the scribe to articulate clearly the long lines of verse [in the poetical books of Psalms, Proverbs, Ecclesiastes, Song of Songs, Wisdom of Solomon, Sirach and Job]. The exhibited opening shows Psalms 9-13. The text that appears in most modern Bibles as Psalms 9 and 10 is here conflated into one psalm. This early Greek tradition may reflect the original concept of the psalm as a single acrostic poem, each verse of which began with consecutive letters of the Hebrew alphabet.
