A 340-year-old Bible has been discovered by Debra Court, a teacher in St. Paul Lutheran School in Bonduel, Wisconsin, international news sites reported.

According to reports, Court was looking for an old baptism records to show her students when she found the book. However, she thought it was just an ordinary old book and it took two years to realize what the book really was. The 340-year-old Bible was said to be a copy of Martin Luther‘s translation which was printed in Germany in 1670.

The book weighs about 20 pounds, a 1,500 page book and was said to be an authentic 340-year-old Bible. It is a rare Bible which was said to be in good condition. It was made of pigskin over boards with brass corners and clasps.

Reports said that church officials don’t know how they got the book and no one seems to remember how it got into the safe.

Meanwhile, the church plans to keep the Bible until its 150th anniversary in 2013 and will consider donating it to the library in St. Louis.
