Eventually, these stories were collated and written down.

How long after Jesus died was the Bible written?

Written over the course of almost a century after Jesus’ death, the four gospels of the New Testament, though they tell the same story, reflect very different ideas and concerns. A period of forty years separates the death of Jesus from the writing of the first gospel.

Why were some books left out of the Bible?

The texts might only have been known to few people, or they might have been left out because their content does not fit well into that of the other books of the Bible. Some of the apocrypha were written at a later date, and were therefore not included. The Authorized King James Version called these books ‘Apocrypha’.
