Why do a lot of Bibles forget Acts 29?

In this Article I will show why Acts 29 should not be in any Bibles .Because it wasn't written till many years after the book of Acts was written . In matter of Fact one can not find one Greek manuscript of Acts with it. Or a Greek manuscript of it except rumors that it existed.


The first person to publish this work 1871 was M.T.G.Cole from C.S.Sonninni who so called translated by a Greek manuscript found in the archives at Constantinople given to him by Sultan Abdoul Achmet. Now only one manuscript of this chapter has been found. But No one has really seen it only this C.S.Sonninni and the Sultan how so how can we know it to be real.


It was written for the purpose to establish the British Isreal position which states that the Anglo Saxons people are the 10 lost tribes of Isreal which went into captivity by Assyria in 722 BC. Which we will see by reading this work and a note or two which I added.


For those who have not read it here it is :


Acts 29:1 And Paul, full of the blessings of Christ, and abounding in the spirit, departed out of Rome, determining to go into Spain, for he had a long time proposed to journey thitherward, and was minded also to go from thence to Britain.


Acts 29:2 For he had heard in Phoenicia that certain of the children of Israel, about the time of the Assyrian captivity, had escaped by sea to “the Isles afar off” as spoken by the Prophet, and called by the Romans Britain.


( Side Note : This British Israel belief system is indoctrinated in this writing as we will see in verse 10, and 13)


Acts 29:3 And the Lord commanded the gospel to be preached far hence to the Gentiles, and to the lost sheep of the House of Israel.


Acts 29:4 And no man hindered Paul: for he testified boldly of Jesus before the tribunes and among the people; and he took with him certain of the brethren which abode with him at Rome, and they took shipping at Ostrium and having the winds fair, were brought safely into a haven of Spain.


Acts 29:5 And much people were gathered together from the towns and villages, and the hill country; for they had heard of the conversion of the Apostles, and the many miracles which he had wrought.


Acts 29:6 And Paul preached mightily in Spain, and great multitudes believed and were converted, for they perceived he was an apostle sent from God.


Acts 29:7 And they departed out of Spain, and Paul and his company finding a ship in Armorica sailing unto Britain, they were therein, and passing along the South Coast, they reached a port called Raphinus.


Acts 29:8. Now when it was voiced abroad that the Apostle had landed on their coast, great multitudes of the inhabitants met him, and they treated Paul courteously and he entered in at the east gate of their city, and lodged in the house of an Hebrew and one of his own nation.


Acts 29:9 And on the morrow he came and stood upon Mount Lud and the people thronged at the gate, and assembled in the Broadway, and he preached Christ unto them, and they believed the Word and testimony of Jesus.


Acts 29:10. And at even the Holy Ghost fell upon Paul, and he prophesied, saying, Behold, in the last days the God of Peace shall dwell in the cities, and the inhabitants thereof shall be numbered: and in the seventh numbering of the people, their eyes shall be opened, and the glory of their inheritance shine forth before them. The nations shall come up to worship on the mount that testifieth of the patience and long suffering of a servant of the Lord.


(Side note : Paul's prophecy of the 7th British census that happened in 1861 and the rise of the British Israel movement soon after proves this was a forgery for the purpose to give evidence of this belief, why would it be found shortly after the event ? )


Acts 29:11 And in the latter-days new tidings of the Gospel shall issue forth out of Jerusalem, and the hearts of the people shall rejoice, and behold, fountains shall be opened, and there shall be no more plague.


Acts 29:12 In those days there shall be wars and rumours of war; and a King shall rise up, and his sword, shall be for the healing of the nations, and His peacemaking shall abide, and the glory of His Kingdom a wonder among princes.


Acts 29:13 And it came to pass that certain of the Druids came unto Paul privately, and showed by their rites and ceremonies that they were descended from the Judahites which escaped from bondage in the land of Egypt, and the Apostle believed these things, and he gave them the kiss of peace.


( Side Note : again we see in the chapter a testimonial to this belief of the British Isreal movement)


Acts 29:14 And Paul abode in his lodgings three months confirming in the faith and preaching Christ continually.


Acts 29:15 And after these things, Paul and his brethren departed from Raphinius and sailed unto Atium in Gaul.


Acts 29:16 And Paul preached in the Roman garrison and among the people, exhorting all men to repent and confess their sins.


Acts 29:17 And there came to him certain of the Belgae to enquire of him of the new doctrine, and of the man Jesus; and Paul opened his heart unto them and told them all things that had befallen him, howbeit that Christ Jesus came into the world to save sinners; and they departed pondering among themselves the things which they had heard.


Acts 29:18 And after much preaching and toil, Paul and his fellow labourers passed into Helvetia, and came to Mount Pontius Pilate, where he who condemned the Lord Jesus dashed himself down headlong, and so miserably perished.


Acts 29:19 And immediately a torrent gushed out of the mountain and washed his body, broken in pieces, into a lake.


Acts 29:20 And Paul stretched forth his hands upon the water, and prayed unto the Lord saying, O Lord God, give a sign unto all nations that here Pontius Pilate which condemned thine only-begotten Son, plunged down headlong into the pit.


Acts 29:21 And while Paul was yet speaking, behold, there came a great earthquake, and the face of the waters was changed, and the form of the lake like unto the Son of Man hanging in an agony upon the Cross.


Acts 29:22 And a voice came out of Heaven saying, Even Pilate hath escaped the wrath to come for he washed his hands before the multitude at the blood shedding of the Lord Jesus.


Acts 29:23 When, therefore, Paul and those that were with him saw the earthquake, and heard the voice of the angel, they glorified God, and were mightily strengthened in the spirit.


Acts 29:24 And they journeyed and came to Mount Julius where stood two pillars, one on the right hand and one on the left hand, erected by Caesar Augustus.


Acts 29:25 And Paul, filled with the Holy Ghost, stood up between the two pillars, saying, Men and brethren these stones which ye see this day shall testify of my journey hence; and verily I say, they shall remain until the outpouring of the spirit upon all nations, neither shall the way be hindered throughout all generations.


Acts 29:26 And they went forth and came unto Illtricum, intending to go by Macedonia into Asia, and grace was found in all the churches, and they prospered and had peace. Amen.

The Bible states :“and they will turn their ears away from the truth, and be turned aside to fables.”2Tim 4:4 (NKJV)
