John Calvin puts forward a very simple reason why love is the greatest gift: “Because faith and hope are our own: love is diffused among others.” In other words, faith and hope benefit the possessor, but love always benefits another. In John 13:34–35 Jesus says, “A new command I give you: Love one another. As I have loved you, so you must love one another. By this everyone will know that you are my disciples, if you love one another.” Love always requires an “other” as an object; love cannot remain within itself, and that is part of what makes love the greatest gift.

Apocrypha Question

Recommended Posts

 

  So I have an ESV Study Bible that I've had for years, and I love it. For my own knowledge, I've decided to tackle reading the Apocrypha, because I never have. I'm referring directly to these books:

1 Esdras (Vulgate 3 Esdras)

2 Esdras (Vulgate 4 Esdras)

Tobit

Judith ("Judeth" in Geneva)

Rest of Esther (Vulgate Esther 10:4 – 16:24)

Wisdom

Ecclesiasticus (also known as Sirach)

Baruch and the Epistle of Jeremy ("Jeremiah" in Geneva) (all part of Vulgate Baruch)

Song of the Three Children (Vulgate Daniel 3:24–90)

Story of Susanna (Vulgate Daniel 13)

The Idol Bel and the Dragon (Vulgate Daniel 14)

Prayer of Manasses (Daniel)

1 Maccabees

2 Maccabees

 

Anyone have recommendations? Ideally, I'd like these in a nice, 14 book, leather bound edition. I'd take any recommendations though. I just don't really need another Bible, and Apocrypha's with a Bible as well is all I can find.

 

Thanks!

The only one I can think of is The Apocrypha and Pseudepigrapha of the Old Testament, Volume One: Apocrypha edited by R. H. Charles first published in 1913 I believe.

I searched the Net for a leather bound Apocrypha, it is no where to be found. However you can get the Oxford Annotated Bible in the RSV which has it There is KJV Apocrypha's in hard covers for as little as $7.51 on Amazon.

 

I have noticed hat leather used in Bible has severely gone down in quality. This might have something to do with that many of the Bibles printed today are done in China and the leather is like cardboard. Bonded leather that once was flexible in now very hard and flakes apart. The paper is thinner than it was as well. Most of the Bibles I bought was in leather, but recently I bought a HCSB is a leather like material and its holding up quite well. the leather one was so much more in cost and the leather looked so poor, and had a stamped like look to it. You can buy Calf skin or goat skin Bibles but the printed Bible is the same as the cheaper ones just a more expensive cover. The Goat skinned Bible will cost 4 to 8 times the cost, if that's worth it to a person, its there.

Hi Brady,

 

Edgar J. Goodspeed's Apocrypha is the one I read and recommend. It also includes the 70 verses in 2Esdras chapter 7 that are sometimes missing in other translations. Not sure if it's in leather but it can be found in many places for an affordable price. Here is a link to it for you reference Goodspeed Apocrypha link 

 

Hope that helps!

 

Blessings,

Love Fountain

      I am having some difficulties understanding predestination and election.

    • Poll Question: Salvation is Synergism or Monergism?

      Monergism is derived from a combination of a prefix and a root. The prefix mono is used frequently in English to indicate that which is single or alone. The root comes from the verb “to work.” The erg of monergy comes into our language to indicate a unit of work or energy. When we put the prefix and root together, we get monergy or monergism. Monergism is something that operates by itself or works alone as the sole active party. Monergism is the opposite of synergism. Synergism shares a common r
