he Eastern Bible is the collection of Holy Scripture revered by followers of The Way of Yesu the Lord. The Yoga of the Eastern Bible is the Yoga of Jesus--the Yoga which He came to fulfill and to show The Way we should walk. The Eastern Bible consists of five Yesu-Scriptures, the earliest of which, Mystical Sayings of Lord Yesu our Saviour, date to c. 55 CE.. Wayist scholars agree with Christian scholars that Mystical Sayings served as the foundation and source document for the Western Bible's Gospels. The Eastern Bible also contains five ancient Scriptures in which Tradition Yesu taught. The oldest of these, the Tao Teh Ching, dates to around 550 BC.
hurch of the East inherited the Tradition of The Eastern Bible from its forebears who walked in the eastern lands in the first century, proclaiming The Way of Yesu. Wayism therefore is therefore rooted in these Scriptures and the cultural heritage of the North Indian, Gandahara and Chinese cultures that embraced it. Among those whom we honour as founders of the Tradition we remember especially Yesu our Lord and Saviour, St. Mary Magdalene the companion of the Lord, St. Thomas the Twin, St. Jude, St. Siphor, Blessed Luzanes, our Inspired Brother Xenophon of Taxila, and Salome of Nisibis.
