Hello, tkg....I'm not well versed in this area, so maybe others can help you further, but I was taught that the Apocrypha was in the 1611 KJV [and in earlier editions of the Bible] and remained there until 1629....the Puritans demanded they be taken out because they could not be found in any Hebrew manuscripts [so they couldn't be reliable] and also because they weren't historically accurate in some places; certainly the latter disqualifies them from being part of the canon....I know that Goodspeed has a lot of information in his Preface to the Apocrypha which he translated......God bless.....Scott
