On Constantine
& the NT Canon
“Because Constantine upgraded Jesus’ status almost four centuries after Jesus’ death, thousands of documents already existed chronicling His life as a mortal man.  To rewrite the history books, Constantine knew he would need a bold stroke … [He] commissioned and financed a new Bible, which omitted those gospels which spoke of Christ’s human traits and embellished those gospels which made Him godlike.  The earlier gospels were outlawed, gathered up, and burned.” (234)
