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

Key People and Events that Impacted The Very First Bible

33 A.D. - 47 A.D. 

Torah Wars

A theological war raged between the first Christians led by the apostle Paul against the judaizers demanding submission to the Torah (Old Testament), represented by Peter and James. Essentially it was a schism of Gospel (grace) vs. Torah (laws) and it deeply divided the young church.

48 A.D. 

Council of Jerusalem

The situation finally came to a head in 48 A.D. at the Council of Jerusalem where the first Christians, including Peter, Paul and James, agreed the Torah (Old Testament) laws were antithetical to the gospel of Christ. The church stands united under Christian canon.

144 A.D. 

The Very First Bible

Marcion of Sinope (85 AD - 160 AD), a shipbuilder and son of the Bishop of Pontus - compiles, formats and transcribes the first Christian bible containing The Gospel of the Lord and Epistles of Paul. It did not include the Torah (Old Testament).

325 A.D. 

Council of Nicaea

Emperor Constantine, a worshipper of the Roman Sun God, convenes the Council of Nicaea and orders the Torah (Old Testament) added to the bible in a bid to unite citizens under a single state religion.  The Gospel of the Lord is removed from the bible and replaced with scriptures of unknown origin.

331 A.D. 

Judaized Bibles Published

Six years after the council disbands, Constantine orders fifty (50) of the edited bibles published and religious scholars confirm they contained the Torah (Old Testament) and several replacement gospels.

382 A.D.

Council of Rome

Catholic Church formally announces what they have decided to include in their new bible: 46 books for the Old Testament (Torah) and 27 books for the New Testament for a total of 73 books with four different gospels. The first Christian bible originally contained 11 books and The Gospel of the Lord.

2020 A.D.

The Very First Bible Unchanged

It still only consists of The Gospel of the Lord 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. Exactly as it was in 144 A.D.

Now you can read the first Christian bible as it was collected and transcribed in 144 A.D. - the full, unedited Gospel of the Lord and Scriptures in their original form.

"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)
