Format: Hardcover
As what was to become known as the Christian church split from its Jewish roots, it was decided to "leave out" several books, the content of which was considered too challenging or perplexing for those new to the faith. These volumes include a mind-expanding description by the apostle John of how he spent the middle hours of the crucifixion, and the (purloined) transcripts of the Roman trial of Jesus. Wide publication of these documents would have eliminated the power base of the nascent Roman Catholic Church... which subsequently both banned the volumes for general circulation and, when they WERE published, included any "genuine" forgery or heresy to come along. Thus, the book as it now appears is over 90% nonsense... some of it dangerous nonsense. Nonetheless, the diamonds which the Church attempted to bury in this fashion continue to glisten with the light of Truth.... the same Truth that illuminates the rest of Scripture.
