Pseudepigrapha

PSEUDEPIGRAPHA (sū'dē-pĭg'ra-fa). Intertestamental books not in the Hebrew canon or the Apocrypha, ascribed to earlier authors. They include The [[Ascension of Isaiah]], [[Assumption of Moses]], [[Book of Enoch]], [[Book of Jubilees]], Greek [[Apocalypse of Baruch]], Letters of Aristeas, 3 and 4 Maccabees, [[Psalms of Solomon]], Secrets of Enoch, [[Sibylline Oracles]], Syriac Apocalypse of Baruch, Epistle of Baruch, and Testament of the [[Twelve Patriarchs]]. They are important for their disclosure of Jewish ideas in the intertestamental period.
