Around 2008 I happened to stumble on an old Biblical book called 2 Esdras and it was actually part of a group of books called the Apocrypha which was included in the Bible until around 100 years ago. The Apocrypha is a selection of books which were published in the original 1611, King James Bible. These apocryphal books were positioned between the Old and New Testament (it also contained maps and genealogies). The Apocrypha was a part of the KJV for 274 years until being removed in 1885 A.D. A portion of these books were called deuterocanonical books by some entities, such as the Catholic church.; Full story.
What blew my mind away when I first read 2 Esdras (Ezra) was an answer God gave to Esdras regarding his question over God's history toward people.Basically, God's main point was that it is impossible for men to understand God's ways. He then asks three illustrations through an angel for Ezra to consider. This is where it gets kind of crazy: If Ezra can explain any one of them, the angel (Uriel) will explain it all to him (why God handles humans the way He does). He will teach him why the heart of mankind is wicked. Ezra invites him to speak. The angel tells Ezra to "weigh a pound of fire," to measure a bushel of wind," or "call back a day that has passed" and he will explain everything. Of course, Ezra claims no man can answer these questions...but we can now!
