That would be _The Epistle of Barnabas_. That is not the first thing that 
comes to my mind when I think of apocrypha. It is of course, but it depends 
on who is saying it and what the context is. Anybody want to define terms 
so we don't get confused and talk about two things at once when we think we 
are talking about one. Also, I know some people who get kind of upset if 
you call their Deuterocanoniclal books apocrypha. Anyway, it can be hard to 
tell if everyone is on the same page. Then again, maybe we should save this 
can of worms until after the new BibleCS release is out.
