The Greek means “Hidden Things” Oh, so it is hidden, why? What is in it that they do not want you to know? Or is it just a bunch of fairy tales?
That is a great question and I really wish I had the definitive answer for you. But I don’t I am still searching for that one myself.
Here is what I can tell you. The original King James 1611 version had the Apocrypha in it. Weird, it was there and now it is not? Hum, I wonder why?
I know you do too, but you can buy yourself a copy of King James 1611, not the original that would cost a fortune, but they did make a special edition of the King James.
This is a very cool edition. However, I do find it a challenge to read sometimes. All the “f” look like “S” etc. so it does make it a challenge.
It is the word for word the original 1611 authorized version. It even has the translator’s notes. I also include essays on the enduring importance of the KJV and pre-1611 translations. So there is a lot in this Bible, all very cool information.
Also like I said it does have the Apocrypha in it. I really find it strange that the original Greek means “Hidden Things”.
Have you ever read the dictionary in the KJV at the back. It says that the Apocrypha is used by Bible scholars for 1. Matters secret or mysterious. 2. Writings unrecognized, uncanonical. So okay, mysterious, and unrecognized? What the heck does all of that mean?
There are 16 books in the Apocrypha and I am not going to list them here.
So, as I said, I am still trying to figure the Apocrypha mystery out for my own self. When I do have a clearer picture I will post it then.
For now, let’s just say that we should read and learn as much as possible before Jesus returns. We must all pass our own individual tests and go through our own fires also.
Did Jesus return to teach John privately after he had returned to heaven? Yes, and wait until you learn what he taught, it will amaze you!
