ARE OTHER BOOKS MENTIONED IN THE BIBLE?

We look at the Bible as a compilation of 66 books, but are there other books mentioned in the Bible?
In Genesis 5:1 it reads "This is the book of the genealogy of Adam. In the day that God created man, He made him in the likeness of God."

Was this an actual book that was used for reference?


In Joshua 10:13 it reads "And the sun stood still, and the moon stopped, until the nation took vengeance on their enemies. Is this not written in the Book of Jashar? The sun stopped in mid-heaven, and did not hurry to set for about a whole day."

What was the Book of Jashar?


Numbers 21:14 reads "Wherefore it is said in the Book of the Wars of the Lord, “Waheb in Suphah and the wadis. The Arnon"

What happened to the Book of the Wars?
2 Chronicles 16:11 mentions another book. That verse reads "The acts of Asa, from first to last, are written in the Book of the Kings of Judah and Israel."

What happened to that book.
The scripture found at 1 Chronicles 27:24 reads "Joab son of Zeruiah began to count them, but did not finish; yet wrath came upon Israel for this, and the number was not entered into the account of the Annals of King David."

Was the Annals of King David a book?

Copy & Paste Rules.

Best to just Post the Link rather than Copy & Paste the entire Gospel.

Rules Copy and Paste - Commercial Links
Hello Members

We have been having a problem with “copy and paste” issues and we would like to take the time to remind you of the Spiritual Forums Rules. We too would like to address the rule on “Commercial Links” this to at times is an issue.



Copy-Paste: One or two lines at most of relevant text of material from other sites or sources and a link to the relevant text for further reading is allowed on the condition that the author is credited and the source linked is not a commercial site (promoting or selling goods or services). Quotes of religious texts such as the Bible or Quran must also be no more than one or two lines. Posts that quote or copy-paste more than one or two short lines of text will be removed or edited. Repeatedly breaching this rule will lead to warnings and possible Disciplinary Action.


Commercial Links: These are currently not permitted at SF, however there are several grey areas such as links to forums with free ads, these are ok, and donation buttons are also ok. If you post a link for your forum please return the favour and post one for SF in return. If your forum/website or link sells anything including psychic readings and the like, please do not post it as it will be removed. Persistent posting of the same link will be treated as spamming, one warning will be sent and if it continues a suspension may be imposed.


If you have any questions please PM a member of SF Staff. Note that the copy write rules vary from country to country and it is too hard for us to police that. We get E Mail often asking to have links and other copied material removed, (even though it is freely available on the internet). At times legal actions are mentioned being taken if it is not removed that is the last thing we want SF to ever face.

and then there seems to be a lot of scriptures in the New Testament that seem to be a copy or paraphrase from the Book of Sirach.

For example Matthew 5:2-12 is almost identical Sirach 25:7-12.

Yes it is interesting.

But why is the thread called the gospel of Thomas? Is this gospel mentioned in the Bible?

PS. I don't know why the post is showing that silly icon.
