Scholars estimate that the 66 books of the King James version of the Bible were written by some 50 different authors. These books were chosen, after a bit of haggling, by the Catholic Council of Carthage in AD 397 – more than 350 years after the time of Jesus. This collection is broken into two major sections: the Old Testament, which consists of 39 books, and the New Testament, which has 27 books. (Catholic Bibles include an additional 12 books known as Apocrypha.) The Gospels for the New Testament were chosen from a huge selection. Many were discarded or destroyed because they did not agree with the then accepted version of Christianity. In some of these other gospels, women are portrayed in very different positions – as disciples, as apostles, as teaches – than in the Gospels of the New Testament.
I don’t know about you but this brings up some real questions for me. Now I’m not saying what they chose to share with us is not true, but the question for me is what did they leave out? I know that the version of Christianity during that time certainly did not accept the fact that you create your life through your thoughts. So were there gospels written about this. I guess we’ll never know.
