All this is from the
Old Testament, J.B.
 
  I don ‛t believe the New
Testament mentions any
missing books.
 
  I overheard that. Yes, even
in the New Testament there is
mention of missing Scriptures.
Let ‛s begin with 1st Cor. 5:9.
 
     
  In what has always been labeled
as the First Epistle of Paul to the
Corinthian Saints we read :
 
 
I wrote unto you in an epistle not
to company with fornicators.
 
     
  Here Paul is making reference to a previous letter. Was it important ?  
  Paul was calling the Corinthians to task because they were not following the warnings
and counsel he had given them in this missing epistle. If it was important enough for
Paul to refer to it, doesn ‛t that make it important enough to be included in the Bible?
Paul also wrote to the Laodiceans (Colossians 4:16), and twice to the Ephesians (Ephesians 3:3 ), but these epistles are also missing from the New Testament.
