Books That Were Left Out of the New Testament

This week on Catholicism in Focus, I take a look at how the New Testament was put together and what books were left out of the final edition. In it, I talk about the Apostolic Fathers, works written within the first century after Christ. If you are interested in reading these texts (and I highly recommend that you do!) I’ve provided links below:

The Didache

First Clement

Second Clement

Epistle of Barnabas

Epistle of Polycarp

Letters of St. Ignatius of Antioch

Martyrdom of Polycarp

Shepherd of Hermas
