    Indeed. We should all have some knowledge of non-canonical sources which aid to the validity of the canonical holy scriptures. I certainly need to be more learned about such things.

    Good work! Thank you for posting this :) I'm currently reading The Land of Eden Located (http://nabataea.net/eden1.html) and I think it's so important to read non-biblical texts or extra-biblical texts to see how they affirm the Word of God. The fact that such things are found outside of the Bible just go to prove how very reliable the Word of God is! :)
