The Bible is the word of God. There are many different translations of it and a lot of translations are widespread and well known. They were translated from Paleo-Hebrew, Modern Hebrew, Aramaic, and Old Greek manuscripts, many of which are ancient. However, as old as they may be, they are copies, largely or completely beyond 2nd generation. The original manuscripts are nowhere to be found. Since Moses wrote Genesis, Exodus, Leviticus, Numbers, and Deuteronomy, the original Bible manuscripts, even as they were being written, were destroyed whether deliberately by somebody or just via natural decay. The last few original manuscripts were protected by the Judeans only to be destroyed by the Romans in 70. Despite the original manuscripts' complete destruction, this will be considered Partially Found/Partially Lost media since their copies and most translations of The Bible presumably give us a great idea of what they said.
