Book Discussion – Apocrypha

Description: The term "Apocrypha" from the Greek for "hidden" or "obscure" refers to a collection of 15 books deemed canonical by Roman Catholics and Eastern Orthodox but not by Jews or Protestants. Historically, the Apocrypha provides substantial information about Hellenistic and early Roman Judaism. Literarily, the Apocrypha shows an increasing interest in sustained female characters, folktale motifs, the novel as entertainment as well as instructive, and possibly the first detective story! In May, we'll be discussing Ecclesiasticus/Wisdom of Jesus/Son of Sirach. Interested or have questions? Contact Pastor Mike at .
