The Bible

We all know that the Bible has been rewritten many times over over the past centuries.. To me the Bible is a simple book of stories that has lost it's true value bc of the many times it has been rewritten...

Now my question is and anyone can answer if they know bc I am really curious about this...

Who decided that the Bible needed to be rewritten? and Why?

Why were books removed from the Bible?
If the words in the Bible are from God, then why rewrite God's words?


If there are web links about these plz post those too ....

  • I believe the bible was origionally written in Hebrew. It has been rewritten in different translations for others to better understand it. (correct me if I'm wrong)

    As far as why books were left out, I'm not too sure about that.

  • the Bible was 're-written' so it could be in many different languages.

    monks used to hand write the Bible. They had to have specific letter size, margins, etc. on the page. If they made one mistake, they would have to start over at the very beginning. (prett bad if you messed up on the last book or last page!)

    The Old Testament was never in questions. There were questions of the New Testament. esp during the Reformation when the Apochryphal Boooks were being used as Scripture.
    this debate was ended (the church split in 2 groups- those who belived the apochrypha was bible, those that didn't) in the Catholic Council of Trent in 1546.

    They boks of the New Testament were studied a lot and compared to each other. Boooks that were eyewitnesses to Jesus or recieved 1st h and iinfo from eye-winesses. Many of the writers were still alive up to 60 years after Jesus left the Earth and the church was able to talk to them (CON'T)

  • con't:
    to verify authenticity. there were a few new Testament books that after through research were found to be people just claiming to be a disciple or people claiming it was written by Paul or one of the others- but they were later discovered to be counterfiet.
