The book

Βίβλος is translated as "The book" in Matthew 1:1 and not simply "Book" due to the normal use of anarthrous nouns in titles. This negates the need for italics here in the article 'The.' Anarthrous nouns are generally translated into English with the indefinite article ("a, an"). There are some anarthrous nouns which are qualitative and are often translated without an article.

Βίβλος is the inner bark of the stem of the papyrus plant which was made into a written book, a sheet, or scroll of writing. There are seven meanings revealed in scripture:

1) It is firstly used here as a book, or scroll (Matthew 1:1),
2) concerning the Pentateuch as the "book of Moses" in Mark 12:26,
3) regarding "the book of the words of Isaiah" that Jesus read from in Luke 3:4,
4) the "book of Psalms" in Luke 20:42 and also in Acts 1:20,
5) as "the book of the prophets" in Acts 7:42,
6) as "the Book of Life" in Philippians 4:3, Revelation 3:5, 20:15
7) and of secular writings in Acts 19:19.

The English word Bible stems from the Greek Βίβλος. Interestingly the English word paper comes from papyrus. Because Beech wood tablets were a common writing material in Germanic societies before the development of paper, the Old English bōc and Old Norse bók both have the primary sense of “beech” but also a secondary sense of “book,” and it is from bōc that the modern word book derives. In modern German, the word for “book” is Buch, with Buche meaning “beech tree.” In the Swedish language, these words are the same, bok meaning both “beech tree” and “book.”

The Hebrew equivalent is 05612 ‑ סִפְרָה say'‑fer, sif‑raw'
