Do not worry about the " lost books " in the Bible. We will be judged on the books we have. It is God's responsibility to give us what we need. We have what we need in the 66 books of the KJV. God did not want us to have these books. If he had he would have preserved these books also. We do not have the book of Gad or the book of Nathan. many make a big deal out of these lost books. This is a big mistake. It's like God lacks the power to keep all of the books that were written. he had the power to keep the books. he did not think we needed these books and we do not need them. You have everything you need just read it and live it the best you can my friend.

Right, and not only that, but there are references to the books of other nations, such as:

That search may be made in the book of the records of thy fathers: so shalt thou find in the book of the records, and know that this city is a rebellious city, and hurtful unto kings and provinces, and that they have moved sedition within the same of old time: for which cause was this city destroyed. (Ezra 4:15 KJV)

I suppose these sorts of books really wouldn't have done anything for us Bible students. Perhaps from an archaeological viewpoint they would have proven of use, but clearly God didn't see a need to give us these records.

Peace and Love,
