"They received the Word with all readiness of mind and searched the Scriptures daily, whether those things were so.  Therefore many believed."--Acts 17:11

All these books are quoted by bro. Thomas as authoritative, and in some cases he calls them "scripture."  Anyone have any thoughts on our relationship, if any, to these books?  I mean, besides Tobias' wife Sara having a Devil which the angel Rafael sends to the Egyptian desert, which technically is no more of a problem than Jesus sending the daemons into a herd of swine, I guess I have little problem with the works, though I regard them more as histories, or historical novels than Scripture.

I guess I should clarify that in the Book of Enoch, it appears that only the first seven chapters are in the original.  The more sensational ending chapters appears to be a much later addition.
