The case against the Apocrypha is overstated
I have been working Michael Barber's blog entry into this article. However, I am concerned that Barber's position is only one POV and is a minority viewpoint. I wanted to ask others for their opinion regarding this material and how best to present it in an NPOV way. Among other questions, I'm wondering if this material should be presented in this article or in the Deuterocanonical books article.

I think the quote "ascertain whether or not Jesus quoted from the MT or the LXX" should be accompanied by a definition of "MT" and "LXX"

Who is Michael Barber?
Who is Michael Barber and why is he considered a relevant authority on this subject? The whole section titled "Jesus" reads as if it's out of place in this article and assumes the reader knows who Michael Barber is.
Timing of changes to printed Bibles
"However, Anglican and Lutheran Bibles usually still contained these books until the 20th century, while Calvinist Bibles did not."
Did Calvinist Bibles ever contain the deuterocanonical books? If so, when were they first commonly omitted?
When exactly did Anglican and Lutheran Bibles start to omit the deuterocanonicals? Which editions or publishers? When did the practice become commonplace?
