How much thought do you give to the earliest physical copies of the Bible? Ever wonder who made them, or where they are now?
In this issue of ink we meet the Leningrad Codex. Its intricate design evidences the care and creativity of the scribes who dedicated their lives to the preservation of Scripture. You can find out more about their painstaking work and the tricks of their trade in Dr Kim Phillips' article Learn the Secrets of the Leningrad Codex.
You can also read a new column by teacher, preacher and writer Christopher Ash. His Bible Toolkit looks at how we can use scholarship to better understand the parts of the Bible that we find puzzling — particularly when the commentaries all seem to say different things.
