Yes, this should be interesting. Many would be shocked to find at that there was not even a bible available until about three hundred years after Christ died. Catholism is too rigid for me but if it had not been for the monks we would not have one today.


I think Bible fights are almost amusing. Like the King James debate. That somehow you are a better Christian if you use the King James. HAH LOL!

The original 1611 King James is not the one we have today, it was based on the the Textus Receptus, Latin Vulgate, and a few others. It also contained some of the apocryphal books.

It has been revised 16 TIMES! I also read somewhere once that it contains over 800 words that are not even in our vocabulary any more. Bible fights, silly to me. I think the basic message stays the same however. IMO much was actually allergories.

As long as people get something from reading the book it serves a purpose.

I think people get so wrapped up in religion that they forget how they see others and are seen.

Had the time finally to watch the epsiodes but not in the detailed way I prefer to study this type of material.

Some statements did stick out and I wanted to mention them here.

The First was about the two version of Revelations and thsoe being of John and Peter. The main reason according to Crosnan was that Peter's version showed that being sent to Hell for sin wasn't permanent.

The other standout was a less than subtle hint of Jesus and the possible homosexual activity between a boy he raised from the dead.

The Man Who loved Jesus, a book that goes into great detail about it is well known and several authors have written on this topic.

The main reason given though was the Gnostic flavor of the texts being the deal breaker for the Council of Nicea to exclude them seems to be it.
