I was reading this book in my NRSV W Deuterocanonical Books and one verse stuck out to me and almost made me wonder if this were to have any merit is it actually justifying books not considered scripture? Now I know this book is not in the Catholic Canon but it was in an appendix to the Latin Vulgate with 1 (3) Esdras and the Prayer of Mannaseh. This verse is just kind of interesting.
Ninety-four scrolls were written in the forty days. Then when the forty days were completed, the Most High said to me, “Make public the ones you wrote first so that the worthy and unworthy may read them. But keep the last seventy so that you may transmit them to the wise among your people. In these are the fountains of understanding, the source of wisdom, and the river of knowledge.” And so I did.
2 Esdras 14:44-48
