The Very First Bible

The Original Christian Bible of 144 A.D.

The Very First Bible consists of The Gospel of the Lord (not four) as preached by Paul the Apostle and the original Epistles of Paul. Within the Epistles are: Galatians, 1st and 2nd Corinthians, Romans, 1st and 2nd Thessalonians, Ephesians, Laodiceans, Colossians, Philemon and Philippians. That is the entirety of the first Christian bible as it was gathered and transcribed in 144 A.D. and as it is now. It has never been changed or altered in any way and it never contained a 'Torah' (Old Testament).

The story of The Very First Bible begins about one hundred years earlier, just after the crucifixion and resurrection of Jesus Christ.

"As we have said before, so now I say again, if anyone preaches any other gospel to you than what you have received, let him be accursed."
(Galatians 1:9)

In the Beginning...


In the years immediately following the resurrection of Christ there was great strife and division among the faithful and even among the apostles themselves. Far from being a time of peace and tranquility, it was a period of constant conflict between the first Christians and the judaizers - those attempting to keep them chained and enslaved to the Torah (Old Testament).  


Pre-Bible Christianity

Knowledge of the teachings and life of Jesus Christ were passed along orally and the written scriptures were not easily accessible. There were even competing versions of the gospel (false gospels) in circulation and a theological war was raging between the first Christians led by the apostle Paul and the judaizers demanding submission to the Torah (Old Testament), represented by Peter and James.

"For if righteousness come by the law, then Christ died for nothing." (Galatians 2:16)

The schism was deep and threatened to destroy the early church or at the very least fracture it into numerous theological bantustans. The situation finally came to a head in 48 A.D. at the Council of Jerusalem where the first Christians, including Peter and James, agreed the Torah (Old Testament) laws were antithetical to the gospel of Christ.

The Very First Bible

Decades after the conflict was resolved, all of the authentic scriptures and the Gospel of the Lord as preached by the Apostle Paul were gathered together by Marcion of Sinope (85 AD - 160 AD), a shipbuilder and son of the Bishop of Pontus - it was then that the very first Christian bible was created and presented to the Apostle John. It did not contain a Torah (Old Testament).

"But I certify you, brethren, that the gospel which was preached of me is not after man.  For I neither received it of man, but by the revelation of Jesus Christ." (Galatians 1:8-9)

"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

First Bible History

Ancient Marcionite Church in Syria Discovered with Dated Inscription

The inscription is dated 318 A.D. and reads "The Lord and Saviour Jesus, the Good" and is the earliest inscription of Jesus in recorded history (Le Bas and Waddington, Inscriptions, No. 2558, vol. iii. p. 583) and more ancient than any dated inscription belonging to the Catholic Church.

The Very First Bible and Marcionism Survive Erasure from History Thanks to Enemies

It is no small irony that all traces of the first bible, and indeed Marcionism itself, weren't erased after centuries of suppression because of the ferocity and numbers of attacks chronicled by its enemies. Justin, Irenaeus, Clement, Tertullian, Hyppolytus, Origen, and others all denounced Marcion in writing - ensuring the truth would endure.

"For if righteousness come by the law, then Christ died for nothing." (Galatians 2:16)

"We have been released from the law so that we serve in the new way of the Spirit, and not in the old way of the written code." (Romans 7:6)
