Heidegger's Bible Handbook: NT Apocrypha: Distribution

3. The Apocryphal books of the New Testament are distributed into those that are falsely ascribed to Christ, to the Blessed Virgin Mary, to the Apostles, and to Apostolical Men.



It would be advantageous to select those principal Apocryphal books of the New Testament, especially those that are prized among some, or were formerly prized. Now, it is agreeable to distribute them in such a way that there are some that ancient deceivers brought as received from Christ, others as received from the Blessed Virgin Mary, others as received from the Apostles and Apostolical Men, as authors.
