  1. 1 Maccabees

    The First book of Maccabees is a book written in Hebrew by a Jewish author after the restoration of an independent Jewish kingdom, about the latter part of the 2nd century BC. The original Hebrew is lost and the most important surviving version is the Greek translation contained in the Septuagint. The book is held as canonical scripture by some Christian churches, but not by most Protestant groups. Such Protestants consider it to be an apocryphal book. In modern-day Judaism, the book is often of great historical interest, but has no official religious status.
