What are the lost books of the Bible?

Placeholder  ImageLost Books are books that the Bible references by name as being authentic and divinely inspired, but which we do not have access to in our modern age.  We may have portions of these books as bits and pieces found among the dead sea scrolls, but lacking sufficient evidence to confirm their identity.  However the first priority of accepting the books as the Word of God is acknowledging their existence.  Therefore the New Canon Bible has listed each of these lost books in the table of contents with notes on each to let the reader know what we know about these works from the known Canon.

Lost Books for which we have reserved space as a Memorial and a prayer for Resurrection
