Lost Books of the Bible


- Are they real?


"More than eighty gospels were considered for the New Testament, and yet only a relatively few were chosen."
Sir Leigh Teabing, The Da Vinci Code p.231


Lost Books of the Bible - Are they real?

Consider This: Other than the four recognized gospels, there are only eleven ancient documents still in existence today that are called "gospel"

Consider This: In all of antiquity, there are only twenty eight other sources no longer in existence that are cited or mentioned in Jewish or Gnostic writings as gospels.

Consider This: Most of the Gnostic works are rejected because they are too late to be written by the purported authors, they rely heavily on the stories in the existing gospels and they contradict the beliefs taught in the orthodox gospels.

"The Nag Hammadi and the Dead Sea Scrolls [are] the earliest Christian records."
Sir Leigh Teabing, The Da Vinci Code p.245


Lost Books of the Bible - Are they real?

Consider This: All of the Biblical gospels date from the last half of the first century, whereas the two texts the Da Vinci Code relies on most, the gospel of Phillip and the gospel of Mary Magdalene, are from the third to fifth century.





"Constantine commissioned and financed a new Bible, which omitted those gospels that spoke of Christ's human traits and embellished those gospels that made Him godlike.
Robert Langdon, The Da Vinci Code p.234


Lost Books of the Bible - Are they real?

Consider This: All four canonical gospels exist in lists of church scripture as early as Papias (c. 115 AD) and Justin Martyr (d. 165) and no other gospels ever appear in any list as authoritative. Constantine did not summon the council of Nicea until A.D. 325 - far too late for this claim to be taken seriously.





"Those who 'chose' the original history of Christ were the world's first heretics."
Sir Leigh Teabing, The Da Vinci Code p.234


Lost Books of the Bible - Are they real?

Consider This: The Gnostic gospels reflect a line of thinking that didn't arise until the late second century, and it was criticized by the early church fathers Irenaeus, Hippolytus and Tertullian.

Consider This: Irenaeus makes it clear that the so-called gospels of the Gnostics are heretical precisely because they were secret documents. The Apostolic writings commend themselved because they are public and verifiable.




Are you seeing that the way the books of the Bible were assembled is far different from what the Da Vinci Code claims? Are you able to consider that the hand of God, not a random set of individuals, is the reason for the selection of 66 books which constitute the Holy Scriptures? Would you like to be sure the message of these books is true?
