Publisher's Description

The KJV Apocrypha in a single volume. The Apocrypha ('hidden things') are contemporaneous with the Old Testament, but were not officially accepted as part of the Bible when the Hebrew 'canon' was set. They did, however, form part of the Greek Scriptures and came into English Bibles by that route. The writings of the Apocrypha run the whole gamut of literary genres: histories, romances, devotional works, proverbs and sermons. Many complement parts of the Old Testament and readers will recognise some familiar Biblical characters in the narratives, such as Daniel and Esther.

    "Let us see if his words be true: and let us prove what shall happen in the end of him. For if the just man be the son of God, he will help him, and deliver him from the hand of his enemies." -Wisdom of Solomon 2:17, 18

    "Wisdom of Solomon" has the most astounding pre-New Testament prophecy about Jesus Christ's earthly life in chapter 2; which makes sense why the post-A.D. Rabbis rejected this Scripture. This Holy work puts theories of the Dead Sea Scrolls/1 Enoch to shame. It is no wonder it's used in the Anglican (originating KJV church,) "Book of Common Prayer" in 1662. Not to mention the pre/post/ante-Nicene "Church Fathers" using it alongside alongside our currently "accepted" Scripture. Columbus supposedly was inspired by a prophecy from II Esdras to find new land. Even Bunyan loved the Apocryphal works... and look at the fruit of his work!

    Positive: Usual Cambridge high quality. Thicker weight paper than most traditional Bible paper. Text appears bold, is clear, and about 7.5 - 8 pt. in size.

    Front page: "Appointed to be read in Churches"... a sad thing to read and contemplate regarding a KJV oriented church.Historically used in Anglican (the KJV's originators) Church Service within the "Book of Common Prayer" originating from 1662.

    Negative: "Scrubbed" in a redactional (Orwellian) way of the original KJV translator margin notes, cross-references, and italicized words within the text. (Like nearly ALL KJV Bibles are today; in absolute spite or ignorance of the KJV translator's advice in the "Translators to the Readers"... that preface, not surprisingly, is always missing also.)

    Book info: There is the massive wisdom of "Ecclesiasticus", the essential history of I & II "Maccabees", portions removed from "Esther" where God is actually mentioned (unlike the Rabbinically "approved" canonical "Esther"), further insight into Daniel's wisdom and period, the angelic reveal of Raphael from "Tobit", and much more. (Raphael, meaning "God heals", I believe is the angel from John 5:4... John 5:4, which again, like the Apocrypha, is ripped out of modern Scripture or made to seem like scribal error in many translations.)

    Just on "Wisdom of Solomon" alone: It was written in the Solomon "wisdom tradition" (common in the Middle East) like "Proverbs" & "Ecclesiastes", perhaps including Solomon's Holy Spirit inspired ideas; or others attached "Solomon" to the title as Church Fathers called it "Book of Wisdom". In "Proverbs", Solomon's wisdom is written 200 years later by King Hezekiah's men (Proverbs 25) with additional "words of the wise" (chs. 22, 24), sayings by "Agur" (ch. 30) and a "King Lemuel" (ch. 31). It's not all by Solomon and yet "we" say it is his Book.

    These works of "Apocryphal" Scripture are abandoned due to some allegiance to post-A.D. (Christian persecuting) Rabbinic thought, the excuse of "Catholics use them" (despite Catholics using the entire canon also... oops), and because people never knew the contents of the ORIGINAL 1611 King James Holy Bible. Whether put in an "Appendix" or not, they are included with Scripture, as Scripture. Curious bit of history also: the KJV translator Apocryphal cross-references have been butchered and scrubbed out of all KJV Bible margins that do not include the Apocrypha. And all but under five KJV Bibles currently carry the Apocrypha now.

    I understand the issue of apocryphal literature. Wish there was a good study bible containing these books along with some jewish apocryphal literature such as the book of enoch and even some early church fathers like Iranaeus and the shepherd of hermes.

    I have always been interested in history,and this gives a little more understanding of the four hundred year's between Malachi and Matthew. Very interesting read.
