Also....we do know that there were many books of prophets
around up until 312 CE when the Council of Nicea decided
which books were scripture and which ones were burned. Thanks to
the notorious habit of early Christian leaders of destroying
books/scrolls, we may never know what doctrine existed before the Council of Nicea. It was the Council of Nicea that removed reincarnation.
