Description: This collection of apocryphal writings supersedes the best-selling edition by M. R. James, first published in Since then, several new works have come to light, and the textual base for some of the works previously translated by James is now more secure.   The early Christian church debated the status of the Apocrypha / Deuterocanonicals, but few early Christians believed they belonged in the canon of Scripture. The New Testament quotes from the Old Testament hundreds of times, but nowhere quotes or alludes to any of the Apocryphal / Deuterocanonical books. Further, there are many proven errors.

New Testament Apocrypha Hundreds of ancient documents have been have been classified over time under the rubric of 'New Testament Apocrypha' (or sometimes 'New Testament Pseudegpigrapha') — not even including the number of works found in the Nag Hammadi codices. 1 These apocyrphal texts were produced over centuries and by diverse communities. This one of a kind, Hebrew/English version of the First and Second Books of Enoch, translated from the original Hebrew, is unlike any other version available. It contains precepts from the Old Testament, Apocrypha, New Testament and missing books of the Bible. .

New Testament Allusions to Apocrypha and Pseudepigrapha Throughout the recent editions of the United Bible Societies’ The Greek New Testament and the Nestle-Aland Novum Testamentum Graece, indices ostensibly listing the New Testament authors’ citation or allusion to other writings have been included as appendices. These books are called the deuterocanonical books or the "Apocrypha". The books of the New Testament are the same. The books include: Tobit Judith Sirach (Ecclesiasticus) Wisdom (or Wisdom of.

The biggest shortcoming of this "New Testament Apocrypha", and the first thing that readers will notice, is the format. It's not user-friendly.
