Aleppo Codex

THE BIBLE OF BIBLES. Often considered the most authoritative text of the Hebrew Bible, the 1,000-year-old Aleppo Codex—known in Hebrew as the “Crown of Aleppo”—has had a tumultuous history. It remained fully intact until 1947, when it was nearly destroyed by an anti-Jewish mob. This fragment, a piece of the ten plagues narrative from the Book of Exodus, is all that remains from the first four books of the Hebrew Bible. It surfaced recently, decades after it had been considered lost forever. Are there other fragments, pages or possibly entire books that remain hidden? Scholars believe that we have not seen the last of the missing pieces of the legendary Aleppo Codex.
