I watched part of a show on the History Channel (I'm pretty sure) which was called something like Banned From the Bible lll. It was mildly entertaining until they got to a portion (The Lost book of Mark, or something) which none-to subtly insinuated that Jesus was "involved" with a young man whom he raised from the dead. I found this unbelieveably disturbing and it ticked me off mightily.
Anyone else see this crap or hear this rumour before?
Oh yes...as I have mentioned before, there are literally dozens, if not hundreds of these so-called "Lost Books". The one you refer to is but one of many. And there even more stranger stories in them.
As far as the History Channel is concerned, the books are indeed "history"; as such I have no problem with shows about them. The problem starts when Christians take these books as "lost books of the Bible" and try to use them in conjunction with the Bible itself.
If anyone tries this, they will run into a host of problems and contradictions. But there are posters on this very site try to meld the so-called "lost books" with the Bible. The most popular one I have seen is the Book of Enoch...but there are many, many others.
And by the way. there are no "lost books of the Bible". I have never understood how someone could think that God could "lose" a part of His Word.
