The Codex Vaticanus is one of the oldest extant manuscripts of the Greek Bible (Old and New Testament).
The Codex is named after its place of conservation in the Vatican Library, where it has been kept since at least the 15th century. It is written on 759 leaves of vellum in uncial letters and has been dated palaeographically to the 4th century.
Most current scholars consider the Codex Vaticanus to be one of the best Greek texts of the New Testament. The most widely sold editions of the Greek New Testament are largely based on the text of the Codex Vaticanus.

IMPORTANT: All Scripture text has context and background. Scripture should never be read literally or in isolation. Always seek clarification from religious scholars and teachers. In general, Scripture adheres to four principles: (1) Literal Meaning - What the Scripture says (2) Historical Setting - The story events; how the Scripture was understood in its time (3) Grammar - The surrounding sentence and paragraph; textual context (4) Synthesis - A comparison with similar Scripture to give a better contextual understanding
