Quotes from the Apocrypha / Deuteroncanonical Books - by topic

What is the Apocrypha? They're a collection of books mostly written between the time the Old Testament ends and the New Testament begins. They were included in the Jewish Scriptures until about 50 years after Jesus died. Some Christian groups still include them, though Protestants began separating them and then removing them from their Bible entirely. Starting in the 1800s, most Protestant Bibles left them out, giving many of us 66 books to read instead of 80.
