Four Reasons Why the Apocrypha Is Not Accepted in the Bible

1. The Apocrypha abounds in historical and

geographical inaccuracies and anachronisms.

2. The Apocrypha teaches doctrines which are

false and fosters practices which are at variance

with inspired Scripture.

3. The Apocrypha resorts to literary types and

displays artificiality of subject matter and styling

which is out of keeping with inspired Scripture.

4. The Apocrypha lacks distinctive elements which give genuine Scripture their divine character, such as prophetic power and poetic and religious feeling.

The Prayer of Manasseh was composed in Maccabean times (2nd century BC). As the supposed prayer of Manasseh, the wicked king of Judah. It was obviously suggested by the statement in 2 Chronicles 33:19 - "His prayers also, and how God was entreated of him behold, they are written among the sayings of the seers." Since this prayer is not found in the Bible, some scribe had to make up the deficiency!

1 Maccabees (1st century BC)

Is perhaps the most valuable book in the Apocrypha. It describes the exploits of the three Maccabean brothers - Judas, Jonathan, and Simon.

Along with Josephus it is our most important source for the history of this crucial and exciting

period in Jewish history.

2 Maccabees (same time)

Is not a sequel to 1 Maccabees, but a parallel account, treating only the victories of Judas Maccabeus. It is generally thought to be more legendary than 1 Maccabees.17
