The Apocrypha Canonized

The Apocrypha Canonized

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.
