Apocrypha

A number of pre-Christian texts are found in the Greek Bible (LXX) but not in the Hebrew (MT). Catholics and Orthodox regard these texts as Scripture (though Catholics call them deuterocanonical – belonging to the second list). Protestant tradition sees them as useful but not fully authoritative and uses the term Apocrypha.
