2. The Apocrypha Is Never Cited In The New Testament As Scripture Though the New Testament cites directly, or alludes to, almost every book of the Old Testament as Scripture, it never cites the Apocrypha as being God's Word. The Apocrypha was not the Bible of Jesus or His apostles. With one exception, all of these books are considered 'Old Testament'. The apocryphal New Testament 'Letter of Paul to the Laodiceans', was once incorporated in many versions of the Bible. However Laodiceans is now considered just a pastiche of other Epistles, and is omitted from contemporary Bibles. The Old Testament Apocrypha is usually thought of when one mentions the apocryphal books. Nevertheless there are other apocryphal writings, many of which are known as the New Testament Apocrypha. The New Testament Apocrypha include a variety of literary types: Gospels, Acts, Epistles and Apocalypses. The fifteen Apocryphal books which the Roman Catholics have included in their Bibles, and use as a source of doctrine, come from a collection of about eighteen or more books written during the Inter-Testamental Period. This period of four hundred years began with God giving the last book of the Old Testament which was Malachi.

Welcome To Pseudepigrapha, Apocrypha and Sacred Writings. I have an interest in all documents that even might be classified as Holy.
