The smallest New Testament - level 3

A nano-sized New Testament developed by an Israeli company has been named the World's Smallest Bible by the Guinness Book of World Records.

The Jerusalem Nano Bible company said it developed a chip smaller than 5 by 5 millimetres which manages to contain the original Greek version of the New Testament.

The tiny square chip with each side measuring 4.76 millimetres can be embedded inside watches and pendants with infinite possibilities in the jewellery industry.

“Our aim is to be able to mass produce it, and cater to, really, every pocket because this application, the smallest Bible in the world, Jerusalem Nano Bible can be applied to infinite possibilities in the jewellery industry.”

The product has been validated by an academic scholar who confirmed the Greek text on the chip, shown to him under a microscope, was indeed that of the 27 books of the New Testament. The company’s future plans also include the production of a nano-sized Old Testament.

Difficult words: nano (extremely small) New Testament (the second part of the Christian Bible, written originally in Greek), tiny (very small), embed (to implant), pendant (a piece of jewellery that hangs from a chain), infinite (no limit), cater (provide), validate (to check), Old Testament (the first part of the Christian Bible).
