Lobegott Friedrich Constantin (von) Tischendorf (January 18, 1815 - December 7, 1874) was a world leading biblical scholar at his time. In 1844 he discovered the world's oldest and most complete Bible dating from AD 325, with the complete New Testament not discovered before. Born in Lengenfeld, Tischendorf studied at Leipzig (1834-1838) under J. G. B. Winer, a noted Greek grammarian whose grammar of New Testament Greek (1822) had become a standard for many generations. For many years thereafter Tischendorf also taught in the theology department at Leipzig. Influenced by Winer, He developed an intense desire to utilize the most ancient manuscripts and thereby recover the purest and earliest form of the Greek New Testament. To that end he devoted a lifetime of labor to discovering manuscripts and producing accurate editions of the Greek New Testament. In fulfillment of his desire, he discovered Codexi Sinaiticus, deciphered the palimpsest Codex Ephraemi Rescriptus, collated countless manuscripts, and produced several editions of the Greek New Testament.
