On Martin Luther and the Apocrypha

"During the council of Trent [1546], Martin Luther argued against the canonicity of the Book of Maccabees, citing the New Testament, early church fathers, and Jewish teachers in support. The Roman Catholic Church responded by canonizing the Apocrypha."
- Paul D. Wegner, The Journey from Texts to Translations (Grand Rapids: Baker Books, 1999).
