Apocrypha (OT)

The Apocrypha, Pseudepigrapha, Philo Judaeus, Dead Sea Scrolls, Targum, Mishnah, Talmud, Midrash, Kabbalah – Jewish literature is quite diverse and ranges over an extended period. I have tried to pull together what is available on the web in English translation. If you can read Hebrew or Greek, much more is available than you will find here.

What are these writings? (disclaimer)
