nano BibleA nano-sized New Testament Bible has been nominated for the Guinness Book of Records as the World’s Smallest Bible.

The microchip containing the entire New Testament is being marketed as a fashion accessory.

The tiny tome, which is less than a fifth of an inch square, can be mounted on a necklace but you’ll need a special microscope to read it.

The Jerusalem-based nano Bible company said it developed a chip smaller than five by five millimeters, which contains the original Greek version of the New Testament (Textus Receptus, or “received text” in Latin).

“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,” said David Almog, who is in charge on the company’s marketing and sales department.

The company’s future plans include the production of a nano sized Old Testament as well, he added.

The process of manufacturing included the slicing of the chips from a silicon wafer, each of them containing the text of the New Testament.
