Imagine reading the letter of Melker who was a priest at Bethlehem at the time Jesus was born in respect to the prophecy concerning the birth of Jesus.

Imagine reading the report of Gamaliel who was the Sanhendrim sent to interrogate Joseph and Mary concerning the child Jesus, in 27 AD. Find out what Joseph said about Jesus. Find out what Joseph, Mary and Jesus really looked like. Yes, Jesus was really light haired and blue-eyed, for example.

Imagine coming to truly believe that the writings in the Bibles come directly from the Four Evangelists. Matthew was with Jesus from the beginning, present at Jesus’ crucifixion, ate and drank with Jesus after He rose from the dead and spent his life propagating Jesus’ religion. John, disciple of John, wrote from what he heard from the Apostle who saw the transfiguration, learned and shared a most intimate friendship with Jesus and to whom Jesus asked to take care of His mother, Mary, from the cross. Luke and Mark, companions of the Apostles, who heard them tell over and over the story of the teachings and miracles of Jesus.

Why is this Important? Over thousands of years, many have tried hard to erase Jesus from the lives of contemporary people. First, the Jews, who were the scribes at the time of Jesus, in their hate of Him, refused to say anything much about Him in the histories of the times they scribed. Not acknowledging this fact, many said, history does not support the story of Jesus, the Christ. So, people like Constanin Tischendorf who discovered The Codex Siniaticus, W.D. Mahan who wrote this book, and Barbara Garro who wrote From Jesus to Heaven with Love: A Parable Pilgrimage and is working on a new book on prayer and meditation, refused to believe that there were no secular historical records of Jesus. The Acts of Pilot is one of those secular recordings, because Pilot wrote the account for Caesar. Tischendorf and Mahan traveled extensively to locate the original manuscripts and Tischendorf actually saved The Codex Siniaticus from being used for fire fuel.

Why else is this Important? Much that has been written about Jesus did not make into the Canon of the New Testament of the Bible. Literally, there are more books that exist that did not make it than there are books that did. This Acts of Pilot is one of those book rejected for the Canon of the Bible.

Here is this book's history--The origin of this volume is in the Vatican in Rome itself. These are the records of Pilate made to Caesar. The Acts of Pilate and Ancient Records Recorded by Contemporaries of Jesus Christ Regarding the Facts Concerning His Birth, Death, Resurrection, originally titled The Archko Volume 1887 or The Archeological Writings of the Sanhedrim and Talmuds of the Jews, Translated by Drs. McIntosh and Twyman, Compiled and Edited by Rev. W.D. Mahan, 1997, Impact Christian Books, Inc., Kirkwood, MO

First published in 1887, this little gem of a book has remained a hidden treasure. Like the publisher and the author, I attempt to serve the Lord as an evangelist and devoted ten years to researching “lost topics” recorded in secular history, which were confirmations of Christianity’s history. When I read the Foreword by Joan Gieson, I knew my finding this volume was also a gift to me from God as an answer to decades of prayers to understand my faith. Urantius was the first gift.

Any believer will be enriched by these first person accounts. I highly recommend The Acts of Pilot.
