3 Maccabees  

3 Maccabees is found in most Orthodox Bibles as a part of the Anagignoskomena, while Protestants and Roman Catholics consider it non-canonical, it is included in the Armenian Bible.

Critics agree that the author of this book was an Alexandrian Jew who wrote in Greek. The work begins somewhat abruptly, leading many to think that it is actually a fragment of a lost longer work.
