What is the justification for there being lost/banned books of the Bible? Why would the Council of Nicea leave out books written by those closest to Jesus? Wouldn't they be of the most importance?Answer Question

The council was made up of religious leaders who tried to come to a consensus about which where most important, because only so much can be put into a book that is able to be carried around There is nothing in the Lost Books that is controversial today IMO, I don't know how individuals felt about each book back then. Many books couldn't be authenticated and/or had similar stories to the ones finally chosen. I'm guessing the most popular ones were chosen.

They were never lost & were never considered scripture. They weren't lost nor removed. They were never in the Bible in the first place. The additional books were not included in the Bible because: 1. They weren't referenced by Jesus. He directly referenced the entire Jewish canon of Scripture by referring to Abel (the first martyr in the Old Testament) and Zacharias (the last martyr in the OT) (Matt. 23:35). He also never quotes directly from any of the apocryphal writings, but makes many references to the Old Testament books, 2. They lacked apostolic or prophetic authorship, 3. They didn't claim to be the Word of God, 4. They contain unbiblical concepts, 5. They have serious historical inaccuracies.
