WHOAH!!! Hold on there little pard!What books were originally in the bible that king James took out and why?(Enoch, macabees,ETC.)
Most are included in what some would call the "Catholic Bible" today, and arecalled the "Apocryphal Books"Exactly which documents and such were not included in the Bible?
Yes, you're absolutely right.I was watching the DaVinci code and they mentioned that Mary Magdalene wrote a gospel. I take it that would be one of those more recently discovered?
haha, yea, I love the book and movie but only because they are a good story.Yes, you're absolutely right.
You see the gnostics, (Which are nothing new at all) believe in a secret that Jesus hid within His teachings.
They do not believe in thwe doctrine of Justification, or that salvation is by faith alone.
They do not accept the atonement of Christ (God) to be sufficient.
Rather they believe that God did the best hHe could, He got us as close as possible, but there is more you and I need to do to be saved.
And the "secret"! is hidden away. Some of us will discover it!
[OOOOOhh!!] [Make popcorn here!]
Now, Dan Brown took this to a whole new level and he and Ron Howard and Tom Hanks and others made TONS and TONS of money, by trying to convince people that the "Secret Code" was actually hidden in some of Da Vinci's paintings.
That isn't really John next to Jesus, it is Mary Magdalene, (John must have actually been hiding under the table when DaVinci snapped the photo)
Jesus and Mary had children, they are the true Challace, the communion, the secret to the way to the Father.
On and on, and on.
Like I said....It sells lots of tickets and make a select few extremely wealthy.
It's kind of like the people who think the government actually bombed the World Trade Center, and we never actually went to the moon.
KOO KOO ! KOO KOO!
well said. God does take His Word seriously as we can see. This gives me comfort when people attack the inerrancy of scripture. and what books should and should not be. Even the fact of the catholic churches major roll in the creation of the canon we have today.What I think we learn from these verses and similar ones in the Scriptures (for example Deut. 4:1-2 and 12:32) is how seriously God takes His Word, and how careful we should be not to add our own ideas or to take away those bits that we don't find comfortable.
God bless us all as we learn together.
[FONT="]Back to the OP question, the books that you would find in the original King James Bible of 1611 are[/FONT]What books were originally in the bible that king James took out and why?(Enoch, macabees,ETC.)
Boanerges, can you state what historical error and witchcraft?The apocryphal books contain everything from historical error, to witchcraft and outright confusion. The Apostle Paul declared that the Jewish people were the keepers of the Old Testament scriptures and they soundly rejected the Apocrypha as erroneous. It is when one tries to interject such confusion into the Word of God that strange doctrines are practiced.
One cannot improve on God's Word. Adding to it will only produce error. One thing is undeniable- if it contradicts God's Word then it is refuse.
I don’t know if the [FONT="]King James Bible was based on the [/FONT]Pharisees Jewish canon, if that was the case how come the earliest [FONT="]King James Bible had all the books that the [/FONT]Pharisees Jewish canon did not contain.I would suggest to those interested in the Jewish canon and indeed in the N.T. canon that they read Eusebius "The History of the Church". In Book 6 there are several references to Origen's Labours on Holy Writ, which set out the books that Origen understood to be accepted by the Jews, and his reasons for such understanding, together with other writers.
As Eusebius is the first Christian Historian his History provides interesting study for any Christian, and in paperback is not expensive. (About £10 Sterling). The ISBN No. is 0-14-044535-8
