What these oft-overlooked books say about the brutal and seductive world into which Jesus was born.
When a writing project brought Tim Stafford face-to-face with the Apocrypha, he got a chance to expand his knowledge of Jewish history, Jesus world, and the difficulties of keeping faith in a hostile culture. This study explores the origins and history of the Apocrypha, then asks what Christians can learn from first-century Jews.
