It is interesting to note that Second Esdras, or Fourth Esdras in Roman Catholic reckoning, contains a strong objection against prayers for the dead - one of the important doctrines practiced by the Roman Catholic Church at that time. That is a weak argument, and it is one not supported by scripture at all. 17 If any man destroys the temple of God, God will destroy him, for the temple of God is holy, and that is what you are. Proverbs 28:9 If one turns away his ear from hearing the law, even his prayer is an abomination. This work was written in A.D. 100.
Your reference to Romans 3 is similarly an observation upon one scripture that is not related to your conclusion. Note: I am al for finding the truth of the “WORD OF GOD” in the original language of Hebrew and Greek as it was given through GOD himself, but to be bound looking for things that GOD simply just didn’t allow would closely be to try and reverse time; which is completely impossible for us human’s.
Theological understanding, however, is far more subjective (like art or music). Required fields are marked *.
Bel and the dragon is no different from the book of Judith in that both of them blend in history with fiction.
The vast majority of scholars date the epistle of Jeremiah approximately 300 years after prophet Jeremiah in the bible. Prescriptive literature prescribes a course of action for you the reader. Thanks, everyone, for participating in the comments; and thanks, John, for interacting with our readers. Does it contradict any part of God's word? It is an amazing book! 1 Corinthians 3:16-17 16 Do you not know that you are a temple of God and that the Spirit of God dwells in you? We are given scripture to study, that we may establish a relationship, and gain a clear understanding of his plan for us. If I may say something here, I have read and taken into account both side of the discussions. He knows the threefold division of the Old Testament as ascribes divine inspiration to many of the books.
At least one book of the apocrypha, [Bel and the dragon], is diametrically opposed to the identity of Jesus Christ in the that it is attached to: the book of Daniel.
As an educated southerner, a bible thumping Appalachian descendant, I have searched the identity of self , God and my identity and purpose within God and unto the world.
He acknowledged the Jews believed in the divine authority of the Hebrew canon.
We don’t have that Apocrypha, that’s Catholic.
One thing upon which we do agree, is that I am not advocating that all Christians accept the Apocrypha as inspired canon. A red flag is raised when I read illogical arguments as are written here. Some classical rabbinic commentators, such as Abraham Ibn Ezra, Gersonides, and Maimonides, used many elements of contemporary biblical criticism, including their knowledge of history, science, and philology.
They Are Not On The Early Canonical Lists.
This is just ridiculous. The books in the Apocrypha were written after the Canon of the Hebrew Bible was complete (about 425 B.C). The Orthodox Study Bible is an excellent source of the teachings of the ancient church: https://www.amazon.com/Orthodox-Study-Bible-Hardcover-Christianity/dp/0718003594/ref=sr_1_1?s=books&ie=UTF8&qid=1482947928&sr=1-1&keywords=orthodox+study+bible. I’ve corrected it and made an editorial note at the bottom of the article noting the error and correction. And he begins below by discussing the Geneva Bible. It is saying, “Hey buddy, I’m not telling you a story. I am well grounded in the Scriptures and can test each spirit as Scripture teaches. Poetical Books
This is not consistent with God's Word being error-free. Has anyone ever told you about any of these verses? I know the main question is by what authority were these books removed from the bible.
270-345, St. Boniface, Apostle to the Germans ca. Other than that, you’re spot on. It can’t be Christian! So what happened?
So the fact that Jesus defines the Hebrew Scriptures in a sweeping statement that mentions the books in that bookend order, from Genesis to 2 Chronicles, like saying “from the beginning to the end” — and the fact that His bookend statement does not include the Apocrypha — shows that Jesus did not consider the Apocrypha to be a part of the inspired Hebrew Scriptures. So yes they are an original part and should be studied.NO man Had the right to remove them.
It’s very interesting to explore this topic; which, frankly, I’ve never really explored in much detail until now.
