Why Were Some Books Left Out of the Bible?

By Michael Brown Published on June 10, 2019

Have religious leaders conspired together to keep certain books out of the Bible? Is there a secret cabal of corrupt Catholic priests and power-hungry Zionists who have joined together in a nefarious plot to keep books like Jasher and Enoch and the Gospel of Thomas out of our Scriptures?

These are questions lots of people ask, and they deserve solid answers. We address them here, point by point, in our latest Consider This video. Watch now, and then share your thoughts.

You’ll be surprised with how simple the real answers are. Nothing conspiratorial or sinister at all!
