    The church. The bible came just over 1000 years after Christ's death.  I'm not Christian and even I know this.

    Matthew 18:17
    If he refuses to listen to them, tell it to the church; and if he refuses to listen even to the church, treat him as you would a pagan or a tax collector.

    Church meaning Christ.

    You have part of the answer correct. The Church came first. But you are incorrect when the bible came to be write. Around 70 -200 AD books of matthew, mark, luke and john were write, as well as the other books, Around 300 AD the New Testament was begining to be compile by the Bishops through prayers and guidence of the holy Spirit. The Old Testament was already on from forms of scrolls, which were copied on paper to form the old testament in a form of a Book together with the New Testment it was the complete Bible, It took serveral years since in those days everything was hand written. There more to this, but this will let you know the what the bible was compiled.

    Dang. I think you have the correct answer.

    The Christian church started in Antioch as recorded in Acts after the Pentecost two thousand years ago.  The first English Bible was published in the latter part of the 14th century.

    the church created by the holy spirit on pentacost!

    Sorry I go your name wrong.  It was hand writen (old testament) in Greek and New testament in Hebrew 300 AD  Much later it was it was translate to latin by monks which took 3 years to translate and write.  At that time only the churchs has the bible. 1.  it was hand writen 2. the only people who knew how to read were people of high position.  The poor would go to church to hear the word of God  (Bible). The langage most common on those days was latin.    But since the question had to do with pass history.  If you had stated publish instead of  "it came after a 1000 years after Christ Death" which make it not a true statement.  Around or after 400 DC the Christian Church a hand written bible which they would read to the people who came to church.  It true the Christ is the Church, but so are we. Christ is the Root and we are the branches. 
    It is one thing I am very greatful and I know we all are is that although we are sinners, God loves us so much that he gave his only son.  My favorerate bible verse is John 3:16, which since I became christain. I hope this does not both you regarding history.  I love history and I want to live the word, but I want to learn about our history.

    Colleen not Collin. You got part of my name correct. I got the question itself correct. The church came first. Good enough for me. The church threw out the OT as the instructions to follow. I was speaking of the actual published bible not when all the many writings (that were cherry picked) were each written over great expanses of time.

    I know Tommy. Typical christian. They can never get my name right. They have attention deficit when it's anything outside of the bible.

    Getting closer on my name. Almost there. 3rd times a charm. :)

    Depends whether you mean Church or church. 'Church' normally refers to the Christian religion, whereas 'church' is a place of worship which pre-dated Christianity by many thousands of years.


    You wrote 'church' so that came first.
