What was left out of the New Testament might be more revealing. The scraps of paper recovered from Oxyrhynchus by Grenfell and Hunt, over a century ago, reveal a different Jesus from that described in the bible. Among those scraps is a record of Jesus saying "The kingdom of the father is spread out upon the earth and men do not see it." In other words, Jesus was saying: Don't waste your time hoping to end up in Heaven. Six foot under is as far as you'll be going.
