Quote:Israeli Scholars Discover Corrections, Erasures, Revisions in Oldest Biblical Manuscript

Analysis of Leningrad Codex shows that about a millennium ago, there were several different versions of the Bible that evolved over time

Quote:Scholars from the Academy of the Hebrew Language who have been analyzing the codex discovered that it contains hundreds of corrections meant to bring it into line with the familiar biblical text we know today. The changes were made by erasing, altering or adding letters and vocalization marks.

These changes show that back when the Leningrad Codex was written, roughly a millennium ago, the Jewish bookshelf contained several different versions of the biblical text.

Keep up the good work, boys!

Not a great surprise. It is fiction after all.
Theists disbelieve in all deities but one.  I just disbelieve in one less.

Leningrad Codex? I guess first sentence looks somewhat like this:

In the beginning comrade God walked through Moscow empty streets...
The first revolt is against the supreme tyranny of theology, of the phantom of God. As long as we have a master in heaven, we will be slaves on earth.

Yahbut, KJV is the TRUE word of God, and every change leading up to it is just proof the other versions being inferior and God guiding humanity until humanity produced a version which matched His will.

There was a "Leningrad' in the 11th century? C'mon dude, even a COMMUNIST knows better than that...

That's weird but you aren't the first who has mentioned that.  I'm not a subscriber to Haaretz and I have ad blockers all over the place and have no problem.
