The Apocrypha – English Standard Version — 3 Comments

    • There are different versions of some of the apocryphal books. Actually, the Roman Catholic canon does not include the book of 2 Esdras, sometimes called 4, 5, and 6 Ezra – the nomenclature can be confusing! This ESV Apocrypha, like the RSV on which it is based, does have the complete book. 2 Esdras has 16 chapters, and the final chapter has 78 verses. The English Standard Version – Catholic Edition (ESV-CE) that I reviewed here does not have 2 Esdras.

  1. Wow, there is a lot to consider when deciding on a version of the Apocrypha. Despite the variants, one thing is for sure. Modern Christianity is missing out on some major events of their heritage. I am eager to dive into my recent purchase, which is the Literal Standard Version. Perhaps once I read through this copy, I will order the English Standard Version. Or maybe I won’t wait that long and order it now so I can compare the current version.
    This article–although it discussed more information than I could follow completely–was helpful and pointed out a lot of things that should be considered.
