The Banned Bible 

Guest Speaker: Jennifer L. Koosed, Professor of Religious Studies at Albright University

Lay Leader: Allan Pallay

In the early years of Christianity, hundreds of gospels, letters, acts of the apostles, and apocalypses were written and yet only 27 are collected together in what we now call the New Testament. The New Testament, then, represents only a small segment of these early forms of Christianity. What was left out? What do these other stories say about Jesus and the early movement around him? As diverse as Christianity is today, it was even more so in the

first few centuries and these “banned” books give us insight into how these other Christians thought and what they believed.
