    Here's an interesting article which goes into great detail about the evolution of Christian texts into the current canon that we have now.

    I've heard the same said, but I don't recall ever hearing any specific texts mentioned that may have stated this idea.

    I am finding it a little annoying to have to open up so many windows to the different texts. Would it be possible to host any of the texts yourself? I hope that is not an impertinent question to ask.

    It is a long time since I read this thread. I did not see the whole list of topics as it was only showing topics from the past 30 days. Interesting to read this now. I think you finally solved the problem! Your apocrypha page is much improved.
    :)
    I noticed this time that the original link you gave was to infidels.org. It does not seem like a very unbiased site. How do you personally rate the information given?

    The information is simply provided for discussion purposes - but I do quite agree that the site has a specific bias.

    Don't know, perhaps not so far off...it is going to take time to read in its entirety.
