Gain insights into Jewish history, beliefs, and religious practices immediately prior to the birth of Jesus
^^Despite the different opinions on the degree of authority that should be given to the books of the Apocrypha, most Christians agree that these books are valuable. During the time of the Reformation, Martin Luther's German translation of the Bible contained these writings in an appendix located at the end of the Old Testament. Luther gave them the title "Apocrypha" and wrote that these writings are "books which are not held equal to the Holy Scriptures but yet are profitable and good to read."


^^On April 8, 1546, at the Council of Trent, the Roman Catholic Church officially declared the Apocrypha to be inspired, authoritative, and equal with the books of the Old Testament. At this council, the books of the Apocrypha were given the designation "Deuterocanonical."


^^The GOD'S WORD Translation Committee included only the books of the Roman Catholic canon, which are known as the Deuterocanonical books. This volume excludes additional apocryphal books which are found in the Greek Orthodox Bible and the Slavonic Bible.


^^Because these books were written in the intertestamental period, they provide helpful insight into Jewish history, beliefs, and religious practices immediately prior to the birth of Jesus. People who read them will be better able to understand the political, cultural, ethical, and religious background of the contemporaries of Jesus.


^^Translated directly from the original languages by the closest natural equivalent translation philosophy, GOD'S WORD Translation is an exceptional Bible that consciously combines scholarly fidelity with natural English.
