History Made: International Nazarene Beit Din Canonizes Apocrypha!

History has been made today as the International Nazarene Beit Din has officially canonized the twelve books of “The Apocrypha” which had been taken out of the Scriptures.

CANONICITY OF THE TWELVE BOOKS OF THE APOCRYPHA
Passed by the International Nazarene Beit Din
1-12-10

We the International Nazarene Beit Din do hereby declare the following books to be part of the Nazarene Canon:

1st Esdras
2nd Esdras (chapters 3-14)
Tobit
Judith
Wisdom of Solomon
Ben Sira
Baruch
Letter of Jeremiah
1st Maccabees
2nd Maccabees
3rd Maccabees
4th Maccabees

We have no hesitation in pronouncing these twelve books it to be works of Divine inspiration, great antiquity and interest, and books that are entitled to a great circulation among those who take pleasure in studying the Word of YHWH. We declare that these twelve books are profitable for teaching (doctrine) and for reproof and for correction and for instruction in righteousness. While we pronounce these books to be part of the official canon of the Assembly, we do allow that a person who does not accept the canonicity of these books may still personally be in good standing with the Assembly.

(The Beit Din is currently still discussing the Book of Enoch and the Book of Jasher).

So, when will a complete T'nakh be printed?

This is truly historical. The time-line for the Canonization of Scripture is stretched even further!

History Made: International Nazarene Beit Din Canonizes Apocrypha!

My Response: As it should have! Baruch Hashem Yahweh!

My first book, Lightning from the Master's House defends the Apocrypha to the hilt.

Is it the official of the beit din that the books were written by those to whom they are ascribed?
Comment by James Trimm on January 15, 2010 at 9:38am
I would say that that is a fair corollary.
