Scripture Study – October 2 at 9:00 AM
This week, I will treat the topic “How Helpful are the Apocryphal Gospels?” This is a topic that quite a few who have attended the sessions have requested. Apocryphal books also include books that are not Gospels. Whether Gospels or not, these are books that have not made it into the Canon of Scripture. There are countless Apocryphal books, but I will discuss just a few of the more important ones. I will offer reasons why books did not make it into the Canon, their relationship to the Canonical books, especially the Gospels, themes, and timeframes. The presentation should run a little over an hour or perhaps more, depending on questions and insights offered from those attending. In my opinion, this topic is a very interesting one.
