    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. ;)

    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"
    http://www.answering-christianity.com/lost_books.htm


    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.

    We don't know because we don't want to know, since thinking leads to conclusions and our findings my conflict with what we were led to believe, anyhow look up the Piso Family of Italy. Also know that the "New Testament" was written before the "Old Testament", sounds strange, well the nonsense that many of us believe is strange enough.

    Keep digging, and consider this reality in the process:


    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.

    Not really, its an old Thread, 2004. Besides, this statement allows me to understand that you have some knowledge of the Cannon? If not, include study on the Cannon in your digging ...

    "as there are plenty of related books or writings that are not considered to be part of the "Canon".


    Again, the scripture I keep presenting, John 21: 25, equips us with the Bible's non-secret approach to reveal what could be found, or what all could have been written.

    "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."
