Carrying on the A – Z guide to Church series with “Apocrypha”
Apocrypha: One of those long complicated words that you don’t often hear often. Possibly because its a long complicated word. It’s also a type of Biblical book, of which Revelations seems to be the only polite example. People also like to avoid talking about Revelations, not because its complicated, but because it reads more like Sci-Fi book then anything else.
And let’s face it. Who wants to talk about SciFi in Church? Before you know it, people might be coming to Sunday services dressed in their best Doctor Who or Star Trek costume. And then where will we be?
(There are other examples of the Apocrypha in some random versions of the Bible, but you’ll need to speak to someone more clever then myself if you’re interested in them. Or you could just look it up on Wikipedia)
