1,000-year-old Hebrew Bible revealed in Washington, D.C.

A rare Hebrew Pentateuch, which experts estimate was written around the year 1000 in Tiberias, has been unveiled to the public at the Museum of the Bible in Washington, D.C.

It is one of the oldest intact Hebrew Bible manuscripts in existence.

The Pentateuch is the first part of the Hebrew Bible and the Christian Bible, consisting of the books of Genesis, Exodus, Leviticus, Numbers, and Deuteronomy.

This 10th-century Bible was acquired two years ago by the Green Collection, headed by billionaire Steve Green of Hobby Lobby fame.
