I’ve read the Bible through a total of 23 times, since 1991. During which, l have always puzzled over those books mentioned in the Bible, which are not included in the Bible?
I made a short list of some of them, they include:
1) The book of the wars of the Lord (Num. 21:14-15).
2) The book of Masher (Josh. 10:13).
3) The book of Nathan the prophet (1 Chron. 29:29).
4) The book of Had the seer (1Chron. 29:29).
5) The book of Shemaich the prophet (2 Chron. 12:15).
6) The book…of Iddo the seer concerning genealogies (2 Chron. 12:15).
7) The book of Jehu, the son of Hanami (2 Chron. 20:34).
One of the perplexing questions for me is why are these books, which are mentioned in the Bible itself not included in the Bible today? I hear all kinds of excuses like they are the non-canonical books in this article include Biblical apocrypha and Deuterocanonical books (which are accepted as part of the Biblical canon by most non-Protestant Christians), but not included in the Bible as such.
Currently no scholar that I’ve talk to can answer that question satisfactorily, except to say that many have been lost in the sands of time.
