Merry Christmas, I am looking for good books about the first century AD. Some topics of interest. Is there anyplace (website or book) where I can go to read the versions of early churh history and the gospels that were rejected by the council of Nicaea(sp?) and Constantine? Is there any research on the background of the apostle Paul? Is there any history of the Jerusalem church that focuses on the ministry of James after the crucifixion and resurrection? I appreciate any leads that the community here can give me.
