The Gospels that made it into the Bible pretty much skip from the birth of Jesus Christ to his adulthood, but there are other documents that chronicle the adventures of Jesus Christ: Boy Wonder. They're part of something called the New Testament Apocrypha, a series of books deemed unfit for inclusion due to concerns over the message they'd send or, in some cases, the number of faces they'd melt with their sheer awesomeness. Most of the stories are pretty normal fare -- healing lepers and raising the dead -- but some are so insane that we learn that the answer to, What would Jesus do? is Whatever the hell he wants.

So I was reading this becasue I love cracked and found this a bit disturbing. I mean christians claim Jesus was without sin but this shows a different story.
I imagine that is why it was deleted from the bible
12 1 And Joseph saw his prudence and understanding and wished him not to be unacquainted with letters. So he handed him over to another schoolmaster. And the schoolmaster said, “Say, alpha.”
2 But the boy said, “First tell me what is the beta and I will tell you what the alpha is.” Becoming irritated, the teacher struck him. And Jesus cursed him and the teacher fell and died.
3 And the boy went home to his parents. And Joseph called his mother and commanded her, “Do not let him out of the house so that those who make him angry may not die.”

Lots of stories are....excluded from the modern interpretation of the bible.
I remember Glen Danzig talking about the incident where Jesus killed the boy in an interview, talking about a book in his collection.

The Gospels were written by Apostles in the first century after Christs death, by those who knew Jesus.
Paul had a special revelation and wrote letters.
How could a story about His youth and His magic be written by a person who knew of Him 200 years after his death? and be accurate.???
This is ludicrous at the very least, logic ends any debate of the legitimacy of this "Infancy Gospel"
As for the Dead Sea Scrolls age, they were discovered in the mid 1940s, there age is varied, very varied
To say they are written after Christs birth is laughable. C14 dating has issues no one questions that, but to say the DSS were written after Christ's death is laughableedit on 27-8-2012 by borntowatch because: (no reason given)
Even Wikipedia an openly antichristian site suggest the infancy gospel is stupid, funny how so many still accept it as accurate isnt it There is one born every minute.
