    Where
    was Jesus between the ages of 12 and 18? “Why no record of 18 years of his
    life?” The gospel writers made clear that they were focussing on what they felt
    was most significant. This is true of all writers.
     
    “Why
    did emperor constantine and the bishops of rome leave out the so-called lost or
    agnostic books out of the bible during its constitution in 432ad?” Firstly, its
    “Gnostic” not “Agnostic”. But to answer your question, because they had a much
    more tenuous connection to the Jew we know as Jesus.
     
    “What
    did Jesus really look like?” From the reactions recorded in the ancient texts I
    would say, nothing extraordinary.  
     
    “Finally,
    can the bible be amended similar to our u.s. constitution?” Firstly, there is
    no “our” here. I am an Australian, not an American. Secondly, no, not now, not at
    such a distant remove from the apostles.
