Re: Esther's Controversy

Hello apollos, my intention wasn't say "remove this from your bible!" I also agree that it's a beautiful story.

This same conversation we are having now, it's an old debate :eek:
Luther included the deuterocanonical books in his translation of the German Bible, but he did relocate them to after the Old Testament, calling them "Apocrypha, that are books which are not considered equal to the Holy Scriptures, but are useful and good to read."

He also considered the relocation of the Book of Esther from the canon to the Apocrypha, because without the deuterocanonical additions to the Book of Esther, the text of Esther never mentions God.
