Contents of The Very First Bible

ABOUT THIS EPISODE

Details the exact contents of The Very First Bible of 144 A.D. and includes an overview of the prologues written ahead of each of the original ten epistles as transcribed by Marcion of Sinope.

The first Christian bible consists of The Gospel of the Lord as preached by Paul the Apostle and referenced by him with the phrase "my gospel" on three occasions as found in the original Epistles of Paul. Within the Epistles are: Galatians, 1st and 2nd Corinthians, Romans, 1st and 2nd Thessalonians, 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 'Hebrew bible' (Old Testament).  

Ey Everybody Daren Klama here with theRight Bible, podcast brought to you by the marcinite Christian Church and the very first Bible, paperback condition it's a complicatedsubject. The Very First Bible is, and instead of delving into the millions of different angles andstories and subplots and personalities involved in not only its creation but subsequent suppression over the lasttwo tousand years. The easiest way to approach this or the at least difficultway to approach. It would be to simply start with theactual content of the very first Bible, and then we can move on from there and explore all thenoks and crannies involved in why it was created. WHO created it. Why?Some people disagree with its creation...

...etcetr at all, but let's just startwith. What's in the very first Bible- and the first thing to know is that itwas compiled in the year Hondred, fortyfour ad and as far as its contents they're,actually relatively simple and straightforward they're, not there's not as much as you would findin today's Modern Bible, for example, and look at look at me already gettingoff on a tangent when I really didn't mean to but hadn't really prepared forit. But the very first Bible has is comprisedof ten books and one Gospel called the gospel of the Lord, whereas Your ModernBible has four Gospels and seventy three books and how it expanded andballooned into that size from its...

...original content and size is again oneof the one of the facets and interesting stories that we're going toget into not in this show, but in later shows down the road we're going to getinto all of this. Don't worry so for right. Now, let's, let's move the catlaer pointer back to where we want to be, which is the contents of the veryfirst Bible and they are again ten books and the Gospel of the Lord. Thoseten books are comprised of Paul's epistles and those ten epistles are GalatiansRomans, first Corinthian Second Corinthians Philammon, firstThaselonians second Thesalonians Layadiseans, Colosseans and Philippians. That's it there's nothing else, there'snothing extra! That was the very first Bible that the first Christiansfollowed to the letter...

...for hundreds of years. So it was the first and that is its paramount distinction, we're again we're going to get intowhyit's different and and how it's different in later later segments or episodes or shows, and bythe way this is. This is going out on Youtube and also on our normal podcast. So I'm we're trying to compensate for having a differentaudiences, like, for example, on the Youtube channel were going to try toput in various slides and graphical images. So you can follow along thatway, but but we also have to confromt tha for the fact that some people are just going to belistening to this audio. Only so there's going to be sections where I'mgoing to slow down ND and try to compensate for that. Now we've coveredthe ten books. We know there's one...

...gospel of the Lord in it, so we haveten books. We have one gospel now within those ten books, the we've covered that t. We could actuallyend the show right now, because we've covered, what's in the very first Biblein total, there's nothing else, but you know we're here anyway, and what I'm going to do now is just tellyou that each of the books, each of the individualepistles and by the way these when we say epistles these these are letters.These are letters that Saint Paul Paul, the Apostle wrote to the variouschurches, early first Christian churches that heor others had established literally decades after the death andresurrection of Christ, and they were scattered throughout theknown world.

Basically, the entire Roman Empire had one of these very ruly. Christianchurches and is the early Christians were wont to do.There was some backsliding into older, Judaic traditions, customs andrights, things that the Apostle Paul knew they shouldn't bedoing and and what they were doing was literally I mean literally within yearsyou could even probably say months after Christ' resurrection. They had their new covenant with Godand they immediately started backsliding into the old Hebrew laws and ways and and bythe way, when we say Hebrew laws, people think well, the Ten Commandments.Everybody knows about the Ten Commandments. No, there were actuallysix hundred and thirteen of these...

Hebrew laws and some ere more bizarreand frankly, grotesque than others there. It was just a a cauldron of really really unsightly things in therein any of them. They started backsliding into thosethings. Much like a dog will return to its own vomit. This is essentially whathappened and Paul saw this. He heard about this. He knew that they weredoing it, and so he wrote these letters to them so as results, while this backsliding Paul had to communicate to them the errors of theirways and try to get them back on the right track. So he did this through these lettersthrough these epistles now each one of these epistles had a...

...a notation or a prologue and those prologues its believed werewritten by Marcian of Sino who live from around eighty five. To I don't know it's out there, maybeundred and sixty five hundred and seventy eigh we'll cover this in latershows. But it's believed that he wrote theseprologues in front of each one of the epistles as a as an explainer is to who theletters were to why the letters were being sent, inother words, just kind of give each one a little bit of a backstory and thoseprologes. By the way it came about, maybe about a hundredyears after the epistles themselves and the epistles themselves. It's believed they Paul started.Writing them, somewhere around fifty ad could be a little earlier, could be alittle later, but somewhere in that ball park in that sip code. Now the first epistle was...

Paul's epistle to the Galatians and that prologue begins and I'm goingto do quote. Unquote quote the GALACIANS are Greeks. They Hav firstaccepted the word of truth from the Apostle, but after his departure, theywere tempted by false apostles to be converted to the law and circumcision. The Apostle calls them back to thefaith of truth writing to them from a phesis unquote. So there is our firstprologue and again in later shows later segments we're going to get into all ofthis. What does that prologue mean what you know? What d you mean they were.There were false apostles, false gospels, we're going to get into allthat in later shows right now we just want to hammer home the basics and what the contents of the very firstBible were and AR. Our second epistle...

...is to the Romans quote. The Romans are in the regions ofItaly. They had been reached by false apostles and under the name of our LordJesus Christ, they were led away into the law and the prophets. The Apostlecalls them back to the true evangelical faith writing to them from cornth.Unquote. Our third epistle is Corinthians. First Corinthians quote the Corinthiansare Akhaeans and they similarly heard from the apostles the word of truth andthen were subverted in many ways by false apostles, some led away by theverbose eloquence of philosophy, others by a sect of the Jewish law. He callsthem back to the true and evangelical wisdom writing to them from a phesisthrough Timothy, unquote and by the way you're going to notice apattern, and that pattern is these.

First Christians backsliding into theend of the Hebrew laws I mean he was. He was stunned. I mea you you'll, reads her some of these quats from the apostle pollen galationshe li. I mean he uses words like I'm amazed. You know how you people arebacksliding like this, and it truly I mean I just don't thinkit's covered enough, th, the the shock that he probably you knowfelt as he is, as he heard about this stuff. Okay, moving on to Corinthian's,two Second Corinthians quote quote after Penitence was made. He writes aconsolatory letter to them from Troas and in praising them he exhorts them onto better things. UNQUOTE, our next epistle is philammon quote he composesa familiar letter to Philammon on behalf of anessemus on e SSI M us his servant, who writes to him,however, from Rome,...

...from prison, unquote and by the wayPhilammon is very short. Now we move on to Thasalonians. First Thesalonians quot, the Thaselonians are Macedoniansin Christ, Jesus who, after the word, was accepted, still persisted in thefaith in the persecution by their fellow citizens. Furthermore, they didnot receive those things which were said by the false apostles. The apostlepraises them writing to them from Athens, and we move on to second thaselonians quote to theThaselonians. He writes and makes note to them concerning the last times andof the detection of the adversary he writes from Athens. Then we move on toleadeseans, though lay out of scens are Asians quote. The LEODECEANS are Asians.They persisted in the faith after the...

...word of truth was accepted. The apostlepraises them writing to them from e city of Rome from prison throughTichicus, the Deacon. Then we move on to the Colossians quote the Colossians they toare Asians just as the Leo decens and they themselves have been reached bySeudo Apostles. Nor did the apostle himself approached them, but even thenhe corrects through an epistle, for they had heard the word from Arcipus,who also accepted the ministry to them. The Apostle therefore already arrested,writes to them from a Phesus, unquote and then. Lastly, we have Philippiansquote the Philippians Ore Macedonians. They persisted in the faith after theword of truth was accepted, nor did they receive false apostles. Theapostle praises them writing to them from Rome from prison throughepiphreditis and that's the conclusion...

...of our Abo our journey into the contents of the veryfirst Bible. I just want to go over a couple notes here: Seehem nail downwhat what the exact contents f of the very first Bible were the year that they were created, undredand forty four ad ten books, one gospel of the Lord, and that is going to do it for today. Now, in the show, no it's on Goingno, I'mgonna put a link where you can download afree copy of the very first fible and you'll need that, because, as we do,these shows as we do these segments you'll be able to follow along withconfidence about what it is exactly that we're talking about, because I canassure you that, as this goes on in the future, the waters are going to get murky.Indeed, and...
