Although the term apocryphal had been in use since the 5th century, it was in Luther's Bible of that the Apocrypha was first published as a separate intertestamental section. The preface to the Apocrypha in the Geneva Bible explained that while these books "were not received by a common consent to be read and expounded publicly in the Church," and did not serve "to prove any point of Christian religion save in so much as they had the consent of the other scriptures called canonical to confirm the same," nonetheless, "as books proceeding from godly men they were received to be read for the advancement and furtherance of the knowledge of history and for the instruction of godly manners. Today, "English Bibles with the Apocrypha are becoming more popular again" and they are often printed as intertestamental books. The seven books which comprise the Protestant Apocrypha, first published as such in Luther's Bible are considered canonical Old Testament books by the Catholic Church, affirmed by the Council of Rome AD and later reaffirmed by the Council of Trent ; they are also considered canonical by the Eastern Orthodox Church and are referred to as anagignoskomena per the Synod of Jerusalem. The Anglican Communion accepts "the Apocrypha for instruction in life and manners, but not for the establishment of doctrine Article VI in the Thirty-Nine Articles ",  and many "lectionary readings in The Book of Common Prayer are taken from the Apocrypha", with these lessons being "read in the same ways as those from the Old Testament".
The Books called the Apocrypha consist of 14 books originally attached to the Greek Old Testament that were not in the Hebrew-written Bible. That is because they were "first-written" in the Greek language. They were considered scripture and used as such by the Jews of the Dispersion Jews living in foreign countries at the time of Christ. About 60 years after the crucifixion of Christ, a group of Rabbi's survivors of the Roman annihilation of Jerusalem met at Jamnia and canonized a Hebrew scripture specifically devoid of Greek writings. Any work of scripture not originally written in Hebrew was discarded as unclean. This codification of the Hebrew Bible by the Jewish Rabbi's cancelled for the Jews the authority, not only of the contested books we now call apocryphal, but also the popular Greek Old Testament itself that foreign Jews had been using for the previous years.
