    of Jesus's preachings that has been filtered through the power structure of his age.  They wanted a submissive populace and that informed their editing decisions regarding the bible.  

    Look up the Book of Thomas to see how bad it is.  That one was edited out of the bible because it was too subversive in it's discussion of what we would today call economic justice.  Who knows how many other accounts of Jesus were suppressed?

        It's a gosple that was left out of the bible.  The scrolls were found stashed away in Egypt in the early 20th century.
