Let’s Not Dismiss the Apocrypha
New information is added to A Bible A Day, seemingly on a weekly basis. These new entries are not normally noted here, though they are listed on the home page of the site. Only the more notable additions merit special mention.
One such example is the initial adding of information about the Apocrypha books. These books are found in some versions of the Bible, but not all. It is important to have them covered, since some tenets of Christianity deem these writings as holy and inspired. They have been added to allow A Bible A Day to be more inclusive, better representing all who read and revere the Bible.
The first group of Apocrypha books have been included in A Bible A Day. These are Old Testament writings that are not included in the Jewish and Protestant Bibles, but are part of the Roman Catholic Bible and others; they are Tobit, Judith, 1 Maccabees, 2 Maccabees, Wisdom, Sirach, and Baruch.
