I didn't think anyone in the thread tried to say that extra-biblical material should be included in the canon because they were cited in the NT, so I'm not sure what point you're trying to make. Could you elaborate. The Apocrypha is included in Holy Scripture as "Other Books" by Article 6 of the Articles of Religion. The apocrypha was a part of the original 1611 King James Bible, positioned between the Old and New Testaments. It remained part of the KJV for 274 years until 1880, when the American Bible Society voted for its removal. It is said printers wanted it removed to make the Bible less costly to produce but I don't know how true that is.
