Earliest Christian communities

The Early Church used the Old Testament, namely the Septuagint (LXX, in Roman’s numbers means “Seventeen” from the tradition of the 72 copists that first transalted in Alexandria of Egypt the TaNaKh from Hebrew to Greek language) among Greek speakers, with a canon perhaps as found in the Bryennios List or Melito’s canon. The Apostles did not otherwise leave a defined set of new scriptures; instead, the New Testament developed over time.

Marcion of Sinope was the first Christian leader in recorded history (though later considered heretical) to propose and delineate a uniquely Christian canon (ca. AD 140). This included 10 epistles from St. Paul, as well as a version of the Gospel of Luke, which today is known as the Gospel of Marcion. In so doing, he established a particular way of looking at religious texts that persists in Christian thought today.

Apocryphal Scriptures


ASH suggests always seeking its own personal interpretation of Sacred Texts. Unintentional 
translation errors, and conscious tampering of the Writings, have been used too often to 
modify the Texts and control the thought of the masses. There are many reliable links on 
the web where you can find interlinear translations of the Texts in the original language. 
However, the web have to be used sparingly and only in support of the studies, but we still thank 
everyone who makes available their knowledge to the community.
