FREE SAMPLE of the full text of First Book of the Next Testament, being the third part of the Holy Bible Trilogy!
While on the road to Emmaus, Jesus appears to two disciples and expounds unto them in all the scriptures the things concerning himself (Lk. 24:13-32). We know what Good News Jesus related to these two disciples, but why did Jesus feel it was so important to relate these Hebrew scriptures to Cleopas? And how was this Good News told to the disciples? St. Luke the Physician does not say. The Gospel of Cleopas, the first book of the Next Testament, being the third part of the Holy Bible Trilogy, imagines a scripture where the Gospel of Jesus is told entirely through the 300+ Old Testament Messianic prophecies.
The story told in the New Testament (sans Revelation) ends practically mid-sentence with Paul being imprisoned in Rome. The trial and execution of Peter and Paul, in fact, the deaths of all of the Apostles are left to myth. The Messianic prophecies of the Old Testament are fulfilled in the New Testament. And what of the prophecies of the New Testament? Is their fulfillment also left to be nothing more than a fable? The Next Testament tells the prophetic story left untold by the young Apostolic Church, but is strangely told by Josephus, a Jewish historian, and in Catholic legend with the destruction of Jerusalem by the Romans.
