dateNew helpRandom

The Deuterocanonical Books (also known as the Apocrypha) are part of the Roman Catholic Bible, but not of the Jewish or the Protestant Christian Bibles. The word "Apocrypha" means 'hidden' and was given to the books in this section by the Protestant denominations; "Deuterocanonical" simply means that they are part of the second canon, as opposed to the first canon of the more widely accepted books of the Hebrew Bible. The books here are: Tobit, Judith, additional chapters to Esther, Wisdom, Sirach, Baruch, 1 and 2 Esdras, the Letter of Jeremiah, the Prayer of Azariah and the Song of the Three Jews, Susanna, Bel and the Dragon, 1, 2, 3 and 4 Maccabees and the Prayer of Manasseh.
