I hate to dissappoint you, but it's even worse than that. The two that are in the bible were not even written by them. In fact, no one knows who the authors are of the four gospels, although there is great speculation. In fact, why stop there ? Almost all the books of the Bible are forgeries accredited to people who did not write them.

Consider the times. The Scriptures aren't by any means new, even the New testament, and many have had their reasons(be it greed or power, or what have you) for excluding that which was once apart of the Holy Doctrine.

Even so, just keep faith in the Most High and His Son, and believe what is before you in the Scriptures we do have, such as the Son being a sacrifice that we'd be salvaged, and His being resurrected from the dead. And keep in mind, we are to search that we might find, and his includes the wisdom of the prophets and disciples from back when. ;)

Well for one... a few of the "books" were blatantly copies of others within the so called "Bible".

If you look at Matthew, Mark, and Luke... I forget which two as I did my own bit of research on their writings a while back, but two of these writings had a few sections which were basically identical, if not almost word for word.

Not sure if this would suggest sampling of other's writings for purposes of expounding on the stories, or alternative versions of the same author's writings but masked under different namings... "Ghost Writer" of sorts.

Would have to use this question to dig more for an accurate thesis, but could be that all of the so called 12-13 disciples did write, and have some content within the so called "Bible", but never credited to them.

But again, will do some digging for further analysis

Respect


Very good UBNaturally, and here are some additional sources to consider as you dig for further analysis:



Books mentioned in the Bible that are not part of the "Today's Bible"

John 21:25

King James Version (KJV)
25 And there are also many other things which Jesus did, the which, if they should be written every one, I suppose that even the world itself could not contain the books that should be written. Amen.
