I would like to know how old the biblical manuscripts(Old Testament & New; different languages) are.

And honestly when I knew about there is Aramaic Primacy,
I was trying to search the evidence of Greek Primacy. (Since I had no clue why the word of Jesus was recorded in a foreign language.)
So... in fact I've never heard about a word from the Greek Primacist.
And I'm interested in Greek manuscripts we now have.

Some say Sinaiticus is the oldest manuscript and very close to original NT books.
Of course we claim the closest one should be Peshitta manuscripts.

More info on biblical manuscripts for me?

Also, what about the oldest Western 5 Aramaic manuscripts?
