are there things that sould have been in the bible but are not?
I think so. If you read the 'lost' books of the Bible (those not included in the KJV assembled in 1611), you will find new perspectives on the Bible stories than you ever thought possible. The lost books contain accounts of an original 'first' woman, who considered herself the equal of man and not a helpmeet, early depictions of Christ as a boy, an account from Judas and his take on why he betrayed Jesus, and a detailed account from Peter of the crucifixion.
Some of these books might be creative fiction on the part of their authors, but some are reflective of older writings which we have lost-such as the gospels being reflective of the Q Bible, for example. That a group of male scholars DECIDED what we should read and how we should read them is rather arrogant, considering we have freewill and can think for ourselves.
I also unerstand that there were some books that were misquoted. that someone may not change a thing from what they had prescribed to us. they put words like this one found in Rev 22.19
And if any man shall take away from the words of the book of this prophecy, God shall take away his part out of the book of life, and out of the holy city, and from the things which are written in this book.
DID YOU KNOW that Isaiah is full of misinterpretations. eg Isaiah 9;6,7
No,everything was inclued from begaining to end.The 14 lost books of th bible from the original documents was inclued but was not brought forth because they didn't have necessary value.

Why does everyone think that the Bible was written and put together by God? Don't people realize that there are many holy books and manuscripts that have been excluded from the Bible? St. Thomas Aquinas wrote one and it was omitted from the Bible by a group of people a few hundred years after Jesus...

Why do some people actually contend that the bible is the word of God when any logicalperson knows that the bible has been interpreted, reinterpreted, written, rewritten, and even altered by men according to the suited purposes of the religious authorities at a particular time?

Why do atheists tell Christians they should read history books/resources?Why are Christians told that we should read history, and specifically which history, in order to be responsible Christians?

No book of Jesus in the bible?We got books from a few of his mates (providing the generally support each other) like Mathew Mark Luke and John, but where is Jesus's 'book of the bible'? It seems a bit of an oversight if Jesus really was 'giving the world the bible'. To be honest I find it a shame...
