There are three texts that are generally considered to be the oldest *complete* (or almost-complete) copies of the Bible containing the New Testament - these are Codex Alexandrius (5th Century AD), Codex Vaticanus (4th Century AD) and Codex Sinaiticus (4th Century AD). There are, however, various fragments of the New Testament that are (tentatively) dated all the way back to about AD 100. The oldest Hebrew manuscripts are the Dead Sea Scrolls, generally dated to about 250-100 BC.
