From the The Lost Book of the Bibles, by Bell Publishing, New York, comes the following<quoted text>

Doctrine is developed. Same as scientific theory is developed.

Peter.- 1. I believe in God the Father Almighty;
John.- 2. Maker of heaven and earth;
James.- 3. And in Jesus Christ his only Son, our Lord;
Andrew.- 4. Who was conceived by the Holy Ghost, born of the Virgin Mary;
Philip.- 5. Suffered under Pontius Pilate, was crucified, dead and buried;
Thomas.- 6. He descended into hell, the third day he rose again from the dead;
Bartholomew. 7. He ascended into heaven, sitteth at the right hand of God the Father Almighty;
Matthew. 8. From thence he shall come to judge the quick, and the dead;

Simon Zelotes. 10. The communion of saints, the forgiveness of sins;
Jude the brother of James. 11. The resurrection of the body;
