The Apocrypha

By: Dr. John Weldon

The Apocrypha – Part 1
By: Dr. Norman Geisler

In previous weeks, we’ve been looking at the canonicity of Scripture. Now Dr. Geisler continues by explaining what the Apocrypha is, and gives reason why the Roman Catholic Church includes these books in their Bibles.

The Apocrypha – Part 2
By: Dr. Norman Geisler

Last time we presented several arguments from the Roman Catholic church as to why the Apocrypha should be accepted. This time, answers to those arguments.

The Apocrypha – Part 3

By: Dr. Norman Geisler

Dr. Geisler says that the evidence supports the Protestant canon as the true canon. In this article he gives the historical arguments for the 39 books of the Old Testament, excluding the Apocrypha.

The Apocrypha – Part 4
By: Dr. Norman Geisler

Continuing our study of the Apocrypha, this time Dr. Geisler explains more of the historical arguments against the canonization of the deuterocanonical books.

The Apocrypha – Part 5
By: Dr. Norman Geisler

What role does the Church play in the canonicity of Scripture? Who “decides” what is and isn’t inspired? What is the relationship between the church and the Scripture? Dr. Geisler concludes this series on the Apocrypha with these questions.

Dr. John Weldon

Dr. John Weldon (born February 6, 1948) went to be with the Lord on August 30, 2014 following a long-time battle with cancer. John served for more than 20 years as a researcher for The John Ankerberg Show. During his tenure, he authored or coauthored more than 100 books, including the best-selling Facts On Series of books that has sold more than 2.5 million copies in 16 languages. His final book, published in July 2014 with Harvest House Publishers (coauthored with John Ankerberg), is especially fitting. How to Know You’re Going to Heaven offers a biblical and personal look at the way God has provided salvation through Jesus Christ (Acts 4:12) and the confidence the believer can have of eternity with Him in heaven (1 John 5:13). John’s life and work have touched countless others seeking to grow spiritually and better understand the Bible. His friends describe him as genuine, humble, and passionate to share the hope of eternal life with everyone he met. His work will continue through his many books, his online writings at The John Ankerberg Show website (, as well as through the many people John has personally influenced through his ministry.
