    Abstract:
    Since Arthur White’s initial release of Ellen White’s comment about the Hidden Book (Apocrypha), it has been maintained that Mrs White never referred to or appeared to make use of apocryphal writings at any point in the years of her ministry that followed. In contrast to this working assumption, this article conducts a survey of her writings, identifying instances in which Mrs White appears to draw upon a considerable amount of apocryphal material in her writings. The conclusion of this article is that Ellen White made extensive use of the Apocrypha not only in the years prior to her comments in 1850, but long after, concluding only near her death. The article argues that her utilization of the material, synonymous with her attitude toward other biblical quotations, adds support that her early visionary claim in 1849 that the Apocrypha was the Word of God continued to function as a personal proposition for her in the ensuing decades of her ministry.
