After the writings of the New Testament were selected from the numerous Gospels and Epistles then in existence, what became of the books that were rejected by the compilers?

Apocryphal texts are non-canonical books, similar to texts of biblical origin written just after Jesus' crucifixion. Although they are not part of the Scripture, these verses are authentic to their time. These pages contain, among others, stories of Jesus as a child and the other miracles that Mary made. Lovers of biblical literature will find here obscure, but unquestionable, origin texts authentic to the time. Contained here are several remarkable references to the lives of the Saints, the birth of the Virgin, her marriage with Joseph, the nativity of Jesus and the miracles of his infancy, his laboring with Joseph in the carpentry trade, and the actions of his followers.

William Hone, in his day, was a champion of free speech and the spread of the truth through distributing books. Mesmerizing and artfully written, enjoy these stories that he found were excluded from Scripture.The Lost Books of the Biblehelps expand our knowledge of the early Christians and helps us better appreciate the texts that were chosen.
William Hone(3 June 1780 - 8 November 1842) was an English writer, satirist and bookseller. His victorious court battle against government censorship in 1817 marked a turning point in the fight for British press freedom.
