Summary

Apocrypha is a Greek word that means "something hidden". The term is often used for writings of the church that are not generally accepted as authentic or inspired.

It is unclear what the motivation was for writing many of these works. But often they fill in gaps of information where the Bible is silent, such as the lives of Mary and Joseph (Protoevangelium of James); the early childhood of Jesus (Gospel of Thomas); and the ministry of various disciples (Acts). The dates of these works is uncertain, but a rough estimated is provided by scholars. The following works are included:  

  1. Apocalypse of Peter (c. 130) 
  2. Protoevangelium of James (c. 150).  
  3. Acts of Paul and Thecla (c. 180)
