Yes, and than there's the biblical apocrypha - a collection of ancient books that ultimately didn't become part of the bible or were removed at some point. And yes, I know that some (many even) of the biblical prophecies have already come to pass. Whether religious leaders just rewrote the original texts after the fact to fit their own agenda - who knows? I've heard that one before, but whether it's true or just an attempt to discredit what's in there, your guess is as good as mine.
