The Apocrypha

Home > Pastor's Blog > The Apocrypha

On Wednesday Night, September 22nd, at 6:30pm, we will try to answer a question about “The Apocrypha.”  One of our Bible Study attendees noticed in their copy of a Revised Standard Version Bible that there were some extra books in that Bible. In addition to the Old Testament and New Testament, there were 14 other books called The Apocrypha: 1st and 2nd Esdras, Tobit, Judith, Additions to the Book of Esther, Wisdom of Solomon, Ecclesiasticus, Baruch(&Letter of Jeremiah), Prayer of Azariah, Susanna, Bel and the Dragon, Prayer of Manasseh, 1st and 2nd Maccabees. Some editions of the Apocrypha have a few more books.

The Wednesday Night Question of the Week is:  Should Christians consider these additional books as Scripture or just as interesting Jewish literature?   What do you think?

Should Christians consider The Apocrypha as Holy Scripture?
