    ‘The rarely heard inspirational stories of the Apocrypha brought to life in this unique audiobook’ In Biblical terms, ‘Apocrypha’ is a much-misunderstood term – and the title belies the immense significance of the 14 books to which it refers, all of which were originally published in the 1611 King James Bible but removed in 1885. Most of those books have always been in the Roman Catholic, Greek and other Orthodox Bibles and therefore are accepted as true Scripture by the majority of Christians. So, although the word ‘apocrypha’ literally means ‘things hidden away’, these texts have never ‘officially’ been considered secret. Perhaps the best description is Martin...read more

To punish them for their waywardness, God instructs the Israelites to wander the desert for forty years, and it is in this time period that Numbers was written. As its name suggests, Numbers also contains a great deal of statistical information and laws directed towards the younger generation of the Israelites, who had not committed the sins of their...read more
