Many times our search for deeper understanding of the Bible leads to questions beyond the Bible itself. As we encounter references to social conditions, cultural practices, and even other writings mentioned within the scriptures we are called to investigate and expand our knowledge in order to fully appreciate the context, knowledge base, and cultural significance of what is being taught.

Canonical Gospels quote other books not contained in the Bible. The Bible warns against heretical teachings without explaining what they are. Without insight into the books being quoted or the heretical teachings being sighted, the quotes and the reproofs mean nothing. Thus, to fully understand the Bible and the faith we are necessarily drawn to sources outside the Bible.

These sources add to the historical, social, or theological understanding of Biblical and its people. In that time when the faith and doctrine of modern Judaism and Christianity were being forged, these books were being read, some by Christian sects lost to us today. From our understanding of angels, watchers, giants, nephilim, and demons, to the nature of the person and Godhood of Christ, these non-canonical books molded and influenced our faith, and in the end they diverged from it… or it diverged from them.

This book contains eleven of the most important non-canonical books in the world today.

  • Section Two: Apocalyptic Writings & the End of Days – Apocalypse of Abraham, Apocalypse of Thomas, 4 Ezra, 2 Baruch
