Many of the books of the early Christian era are lost, but some still survive, even though they are not included in the Bible.

One of these is the Mandaean Book of John, which is still used by the existing followers of John The Baptist, and another is the Book of Thomas, which is used in India by the Church he founded there.

Charles Haberl has translated the Mandaean Book of John into English and has worked with that community for decades. Sadly, they have been experiencing heightened persecution and near extinction since the US invasion of Iraq in 2003. They are also the last surviving Gnostics.

It is a fascinating discussion.
