"Although not discussed much outside of academic circles, there was a great battle raging in the first century between the first Christians and those seeking to judaize the faith and keep it ensnared in Torah law and traditions."
The Torah (Old Testament) and other writings of unknown origin, were nailed onto the first Christian bible by order of a pagan Roman Emperor's political committee hundreds of years after it was first transcribed in 144 A.D.
The committee was called the Council of Nicaea and its actions in 325 A.D. were the theological equivalent of spraypainting a wall with graffiti - rendering The Very First Bible virtually unrecognizable from its original form. The changes were formally codified by the Council of Rome in 382 A.D.
According to the first Christians at the Council of Jerusalem in 48 A.D., God was revealed through Jesus, not the Torah (Old Testament) - which depicts a tribal religion, deity and culture that is alien to Christianity.
Parable regarding Christians and separation from the Torah (Old Testament): "And no man puts new wine into old wineskins; else the new wine will burst the skins, and itself will be spilled, and the skins will perish. But new wine must be put into new wineskins; and both are preserved." - The Gospel of the Lord
