  • You mean the Infancy Gospel of Thomas, which was intentionaly left out of the Bible? You can read about it here:

  • after watching it. idont see why some ppl say its heretic. honestly i think it just adds more to the whole jesus life span....nd to me it makes perfect sense. any child that was born with divine spirit inside of him with the life he would have to lead..would be confused and a little angry as a child, and probably act out a little.....if anything i think it actually makes it more relateable cause it shows that he understands the human condition. that make sense?

  • but they also said that when the church was pushed to get more organized by constantine...they literally did not have the money to put everything into print! so they had to pick what they could print and if your forced to do that........although something like that is good and shows you more insight into him and to me makes him even more relatable...it is not as necessary as some of the other verses
