What Is the Apocrypha?


Video from Southern Seminary


Here are the ancient New Testament Apocrypha with translations and commentary. The Apocrypha are documents that were not accepted into the canon of the New Testament by the orthodox church. The New Testament Apocrypha are those writings that were written by ancient Christians that were not accepted into the New Testament, while the Old Testament Apocrypha consist of Jewish documents that were not accepted into the Old Testament. The Old Testament Apocrypha can be found on the Noncanonical Homepage.


The Apocrypha are extra biblical resources that we should not shy away from. Even Jesus referred to the now extinct Book of Jasher for historical information.


Here are the New Testament Apocrypha that are presented on the Early Christian Writings web site.
