Discussion for 1 Maccabees 1

  • Ginny Brown
    I can see where God's Word was altered and purportedly claimed as God's Word.
  • Matt
    These books are crucial to our understanding of the fulfillment of the prophecies of Daniel. Concerns about authenticity may be warranted in some works of the "apocrypha, " but a removal of this account from study brings obscurity to the student, and I believe is key to the divisive exploitation of ignorance that today 's end time industry engages in.
  • David Dekke
    More detailed & enlightened than other books of the bible about the sufferings of the children of isreal, should have been included.
  • Ron
    Excellent book, I consider it greater and better than many other books in the bible
  • Gerald High
    Very interesting form a historicle point of view but I see why it wasn't included in the biblical canon we have today.
